Stephen Twigg MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the judge ordering an urgent hearing into the GCSE English fiasco, said:
“It’s welcome that the judge has said this fiasco must be dealt with urgently, but it should never have come to this. Pupils and parents shouldn’t be forced to go to the courts to get fair grades.
“Michael Gove has the power to sort out his exam shambles, as has already happened in Wales. Without a regrade of exams and a full, independent inquiry, young people will never get justice.”
