    [...] ensuring that there will not be any difference(s) between A-grades in different areas of the country.

    I'll skip over the peculiarity of the sentence, although that makes it a bit difficult to work out whether I like difference or differences. The construction of your sentence would accept either.

    I'd prefer to say "... there will be no difference between A-grades ...".
