Boris action on exam results in England – based on teacher assessments after U-turn. Watch students protesting against the original results.
A-level and GCSE students in England will have their results based on teacher assessments. It will also apply in Wales and Northern Ireland. There was pressure on ministers to let teacher-assessed grades stand in England. This to avoid a second wave of exams chaos hitting GCSE results this week.
About 40% of A-Level results were downgraded after the exams regulator Ofqual used an algorithm based on schools’ previous results.
The Education Secretary, Gavin Williams confirmed the change in approach after a conversation with Boris Johnson. The PM, who is now on holiday for a week in Scotland, held a conference call with Gavin Williamson and officials this morning. Gavin Williamson has also apologised.
It’s reported A-level and GCSE pupils in England will receive the grades predicted by their teachers in a government climbdown. It comes after days of criticism.
This is welcome, glad concerns have been listened to and acted on. Will be talking to the Minister at 6pm tonight to raise issues about sitting exams and the situation re capping of university places. Also had good meetings with Portsmouth University and college today. https://t.co/R8anok1xoS
