Maths and English GCSE results 2023

The proportion of post-16 students achieving a grade 4 or above was down this year for both maths and English compared to 2019, before the pandemic.

The Joint Council for Qualifications deemed that results for students aged 17 and over are more variable than those for school pupils, as they represent a “more changeable cohort”.

Entries to maths and English GCSEs for post-16 students rose by 19,000 and 13,000 respectively compared to 2022, as they continued to recover to pre-pandemic levels. Grade 4+ pass rates for adult candidates were significantly higher in maths but lower in English compared to both 2022 and 2019.

Additional demand for resits is anticipated from post-16 students in 2024 because of the overall fall in GCSE grading.
