Students celebrate GCSE results day

24 August 2023

Students in Jersey have celebrated their GCSE results, achieving overall results that are better than their English counterparts. 

In Jersey 73.7% of GCSE/IGCSEs graded at 4-9 (or C and above), and 24.7% at the highest grades 7- 9 (or A/A*). This compares favorably to England, where 67.8% of GCSE/IGCSEs graded at 4-9 (or C and above), and 21.6% at the highest grades 7-9 (or A/A*).

In addition, a small number of pupils sat IGCSEs using the A* - G grading system. There were 6 entries, they were all graded at C and above (comparable data for England is not available). 

Due to COVID-19, summer examinations were cancelled in 2020 and 2021. Instead, students were assessed using Teacher Assessed Grades (TAG), which were awarded to students based on a range of evidence. 

In 2022, the UK’s Department for Education and examinations regulator, Ofqual, announced that students would be offered additional support to help them transition back to sitting exams, including changes to coursework, support materials, advance information, and less optional content. 

Some additional support has been retained in 2023, including changes to exam timetables, and the inclusion of support materials for some subjects. 

Minister for Children and Education, Deputy Inna Gardiner, said: “I would like to congratulate all the students who are receiving their results today: every one of you should be proud of your own individual journey and your personal achievements. 

“Today marks the end of one phase of our young people’s education, but for many it is also the start of exciting new opportunities, whether that be moving on to further study or starting an apprenticeship.”
