I am outraged that Ofqual have somehow reached the conclusion not to take adequate action to remedy this travesty. There are at least 400 young people in Leeds whose futures have been left hanging in the balance because of the unfair grading by some examination boards. The option to offer a re-sit is absolutely unacceptable and totally misses the point.

This is not an issue of standards its an issue of fairness in relation to work students have already completed. These young people who, if their GCSE papers had been submitted just six months earlier with the same mark would have been awarded a C grade, but were given a D because of changes to the grade boundaries.
