Teaching union NASUWT says today should be about celebrating and valuing the results achieved by pupils.
These results are what they are and ultimately it is their value to pupils that counts and not their value to the system. The achievements and success of our young people should be celebrated, not diminished or devalued.
There will be many pupils who will have exceeded expectations in achieving, say a D or E grade, but because of the obsession with A* to C grades their hard work and the commitment of their teachers is forgotten about.
The union added: "With widening differences between the qualifications system in England and Wales, it is clear that comparison with grades across the UK is becoming increasingly challenging."
