Best Answer

A grade G is considered a fail at GCSE. The pass grades are A*, A, B and C. Any grade below C is regarded as a fail and not worth much to employers, colleges and universities.

If you attain a range of grades from D to G in your GCSEs, you may find that you would do better at a vocational course or a modern apprenticeship.

A complete fail would be a U (Unclassified). This is where you either do extremely bad, or you don't complete the coursework or the test. Most people class anything under a D as a fail.
