Gavin Williamson apologises for exam downgrade disruption

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has said he is 'deeply sorry' to school pupils who had their grades unfairly downgraded across England. He told the Commons: 'The independent regulator Ofqual had put in place a system for arriving at grades that was believed to be fair and robust. 'It became clear, however, that there were far too many inconsistent and unfair outcomes for A and AS-level students, and that it was not reasonable to expect these to be dealt with even through a boosted and enhanced appeals process.'
