Regraded English Language GCSE results due

The WJEC will today issue the regraded results of English GCSEs.

Welsh Education Minister Leighton Andrews directed the board to review this year's results following the row about students being awarded lower grades than expected last month.

The exam board is obliged to publish the results by 5pm.

The re-grading direction applies specifically to those candidates on the C/D grade boundary. However, there will be some consequential impact on other grades, which are determined by an arithmetic relationship to the C/D boundary.
