KentOnline Podcast: A-Level and GCSE results to be based on teacher-assessed grades following government U-turn

More news, no ads


The government today announced a U-turn in their decision over A-Level and GCSE exam results, following fierce criticism from pupils who lost out on university places due to downgrading.

Grades will now be based on teacher-assessed marks, as opposed to Ofqual's "standardised" algorithm.

We've been speaking to an education law expert on what could happen to those university places now, after one Medway MP predicted admissions 'chaos' following the announcement.

Also in the podcast: we hear from a couple who have been offering a home to people seeking asylum in the UK for the past four years.
