New UK exam system needed

** Heads call for regrading of GCSEs **
Head teachers are pressing for this summer’s English GCSEs to be regraded amid a row over grade boundaries.

So what we are saying here is that the fiasco over grade boundaries needs to be investigated in order that we make sure that results continue their year on year improvement?

 

I agree that the results should be re-graded because what has happened to this year’s cohort is clearly unfair as they are not being treated in the same way as their GCSE predecessors.

 

Will somebody in government (Michael Gove for instance) not just admit that these exams are not fit for purpose and introduce a new system where examinations are difficult and everybody sits the same ones. It is making us a laughing stock.
