Thank God A level Result Reverse - Give Student what they deserve.

Pressure is mounting on ministers to let teacher-assessed grades stand in England to avoid a second wave of exams chaos hitting GCSE results this week.

About 40% of A-Level results were downgraded after the exams regulator Ofqual used an algorithm based on schools' previous results.

The English government is set to make an announcement on this issue this afternoon.

Northern Ireland's government said it would use teachers' grades for GCSEs.

The Welsh Government has announced that teachers' grades will now be awarded to A-level and GCSE students. It will also affect AS-levels, skills challenge certificates and the Welsh Baccalaureate.

Speculation is growing that a similar move will be made in England, bringing all four nations in line with each other.

Scotland already said students' teacher-assessed grades would stand after a huge outcry over unfairness.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, currently on holiday, spoke to Education Secretary Gavin Williamson and his senior officials earlier on Monday to discuss the growing outcry over results.

The Department for Education and Ofqual are now expected to address the issue for England in a statement this afternoon, but it is understood they will hold off from delaying GCSE exam results.
