GCSEs need to change!

** GCSEs unfair to pupils, says Gove **

What has happened this year is clearly grossly unfair to many students. The parameters were moved resulting in many students receiving lower grades than they should have done. It is farcical that a student would have been awarded a higher grade last year for producing identical work.
The government should step in and force Ofqual and the examination boards to review the grades and reassign as necessary.
Moving forward the entire GCSE system should be scrapped in favour of a single rigorous examination. With that I wholeheartedly agree.
