GCSEs under discussion

Education bosses are meeting for a summit in Leeds on the marking of this year's GCSEs. Many students got lower results than expected after grade boundaries were changed.

We are really pleased that we have been able to secure some excellent speakers at such short notice. This summit promises to provoke some passionate debate and discussions not only about the unfair grading of GCSEs but also the wider issues affecting the future of secondary qualifications. It is so important we do not forget about the young people mixed up in this, who, through not fault of their own, had their work devalued. This summit will help us keep the issue live."

– Cllr Judith Blake
