At Elmfield our pupils sit their GCSE exams over two years, taking up to 4 in Class 10 and up to 4 or 5 in Class 11. This is so that they can also continue to study the Waldorf curriculum and it means that their focus is not solely on exams.
Pupils typically go onto local sixth form colleges such as King Edward VI College in Stourbridge, Haybridge Sixth Form and Halesowen College.
The changes to the grading system mean many subjects are now ranked 1 – 9 with 9 being the highest.
Grades 4 – 6 represent C – B.
Grades 7 – 9 represent an A – A* and above.
Grade 4 is considered a standard pass.
Grade 5 is considered a good pass.
