Each educational center has its own indicator for the measurement they put in their league table. They often mention these indicators on their websites. These indicators might measure a pupils’ average grade across eight subjects, pupils’ progress between Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4, pupil’s AAB scores, etc. Therefore, it is important to know which indicators they use to show best GCSE results in the UK in a table. All exams are now given numerical grades from 9 to 1 instead of A* to G. You can find more information about UK GCSE grading system at Study GSCEs in UK.
