The row over the grading of GCSE English papers is still continuing. Here's a timeline of the key events:
- 2010: New GCSE English syllabuses introduced with pupils sitting an exam and submitting two pieces of coursework, under classroom supervision.
- January 2012: First students begin English GCSE.
- June: Majority of students complete qualification
- 23 August: Students in England, Wales and Northern Ireland receive their GCSEs. Proportion of GCSEs awarded at least a C falls for first time ever.
- 24 August: Head teachers urge Michael Gove to conduct an inquiry into this year's GCSEs.
- 25 August: Exams regular Ofqual says it'll look at grades again.
- 28 August: Association of School and College Leaders calls for students marked down in June to have grades reissued.
- 31 August: Ofqual publishes report saying that January's GCSE English exams were "graded generously" and that June boundaries were properly set and candidates' work properly graded.
The exam regulator says GCSE English exams were graded generously in January, but it found no problem with the boundaries set for June.
England's exams watchdog, Ofqual, is to set out its initial findings on the row over English GCSEs.
