In 2016, the decision was taken to introduce 9-1 grading for UK schools only, in existing Cambridge IGCSEs with the highest levels of candidate entries. To support independent schools in the UK, we have made some more 9-1 versions of our most popular existing syllabuses available.
Universities have made it clear that they will treat students with A*-G grades and 9-1 grades equally. It is also important to note that the 9 grade cannot be treated as representing higher achievement than an A* grade.
