**GCSE results 2018live updates**
Last year a9 to 1 GCSE grading structurewas introduced as part of a rolling system which will see the A* to G grades eventually scrapped.
The new number structure affected three subjects -- English language, English literature and maths.
This year they are joined by another 20 subjects meaning that many students (though not all) will receive entirely 9 to 1 grades for theirGCSEsthis summer.
Ahead of results day, exam boards worked with senior examiners to set grade boundaries on this summer's papers.

This is not done until after marking has taken place so that the grade boundaries can take account of how demanding the papers were.
Grade boundaries for each of these subjects only became available today.
Students who want to see what the grade boundaries can check them on their exam board's website, where they were published first thing.
Each exam board publishes the boundary at a different time. You can check each one via the links below.
