The recent fiasco surrounding this year's A level results has sparked pressure on the Prime Minister to delay Thursday's much-anticipated GCSE results by two weeks to avoid further chaos. Many are speculating that the PM will announce this afternoon that he will follow the approach of Scotland and Wales in ditching the system and grading students according to their teachers' predictions.
My heart goes out to all of the learners that have been impacted by this year's new controversial algorithm to determine grades which have left individuals feeling lost, overwhelmed, and let down.
We are working hard to get out and reach those impacted to offer free advice and guidance.
Lord Baker, who introduced the GCSE system, said of the government:
"If you are in a hole, stop digging."
