Stephen Twigg visiting over GCSEs fiasco
5:04pm Wednesday 17th October 2012 in Education
More than 130 pupils were directly affected when students who entered for GCSE English in January 2012 needed lower marks to pass than those who entered in the summer.
It meant some students who took their exam and were assessed in June performed better than students who took their exams in January but were still awarded a lower grade.
Mr Twigg met with head teachers before answering questions from students at 3pm.
