- The row over the summer's GCSE English results broke out after it emerged that grading boundaries for GCSE English were altered between January and June.
- The grade boundaries for the GCSE English foundation paper were changed for a C award by 10 marks between the January 2012 and June 2012 exams.
- This change of boundary is unprecedented.
- In Lewisham 163 pupils have been left with D grades who, had they sat the exam in January, would have got a C. This is mirrored in every authority in the country.
- Overall, 63.9% of GCSE English exams were awarded at least a C, a 1.5% drop on the year before.
