Very confused, are they going to be marked with numbers not letter grades? How will they be different (not that I understand this year's system).

Sorry DH and I grew up elsewhere in the world, everyone assumes it's obvious what is going on.

Are they going to be endlessly changed around all the time, do you think? We have another dd due to take them, or something, in 2019.

I think it is the year after that, silverysea (2017). And even then it's only English lit, lang & maths for that year. Someone else will confirm (my DS2 will be doing them in 2017, and I thought he was the first year with changes, but only for those 3 subjects, others will follow). Guest55 has posted a timetable of the changes somewhere, but I can't find them just now.
