More than 90,000 exam grades changed
“As data published today by Ofqual shows, each year over 8 million GCSE and A level grades are awarded to a high level of accuracy. Although the number of enquiries about results increased in 2015, the proportion of all grades changed was 1.1%,” said the JCQ’s director general Michael Turner.
It may well be only 1%, but a considerable amount of time and expense goes into re-marks. Another consequence of league tables?
