For thousands of students around Norfolk and Suffolk, exams have now arrived.

We’ve reached the season of textbooks and highlighters, with plenty of students having already taken some of their GCSEs exams - and brushing up on subjects yet to come.

Students are tested on a range of subjects, including the core English and maths and other options they have chosen.

And this year things are more complicated than ever - for many subjects, this is the first assessment in new courses, which are also marked on a new system.

While subjects were previously graded in the traditional letters, they are gradually being switched over to a numerical system ranging from one to nine - with nine being equivalent to a high A* and grades four and five hovering roughly around a C.

Last year, English and maths were the first to swap over, with subjects including citizenship, sciences, drama and art and design changing this year.

We’ve pulled together 10 sample GCSE questions to see how you fare - they’ve been collected from previous and sample papers and are designed to reflect some of the topics students have been learning about.
