This year will be the first that some subjects will get graded with numbers instead of letters.

If you are sitting maths, English language and English literature you will receive a mark from 1 to 9 – with 9 being the highest.

This makes it slightly confusing when comparing them to other subjects, which will not get numeric grades until 2018 and 2019.

To help you, we have worked out that 4 equals a C grade, 6 equals a B grade and 7 equals an A grade.

We’ll be bringing you all the latest news and grades from across the borough. You can follow all the latest by clicking here.

Feel free to email us at ralph.blackburn@archant.co.uk or tweet us at @ilfordrecorder to let us know how you’ve got on.

The next wave, with numeric grades awarded for the first time next summer, include the sciences, history, geography and some modern languages, with others such as art, music and drama being given numeric grades for the first time in 2018.

A small number of other languages, taken by small numbers of students, will be first examined in 2020.

The new English and maths courses have more content and are tougher generally.

In maths, there is more content on topics such as number, ration and proportion, and pupils have to show clear mathematical arguments for their calculations and remember key formulae.

In English language, pupils now have to read a wider range of texts from different genres and time periods, and more importance is given to spelling, punctuation and grammar.

In English literature, students have to read a wide range of classic literature, including 19th century novels, Shakespeare and the Romantic period.
