A note about the GCSE Results The result summary on this website will differ from those published by the Department for Education (and possibly those by other schools for comparison). This is because, at Battle Abbey, Geography and Mathematics are assessed using the iGCSE option offered by Cambridge International Examinations. This is quite common practice in top independent schools because these qualifications are more internationally recognised and provide more rigorous preparation for ‘A’ Levels. Sadly, the Department for Education have decided not to include these qualifications when publishing GCSE statistics.
