Russell Hobby, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT said: “The large increase in papers sent for remarking is a sign of falling confidence in exams following many rapid changes. The volume of grade changes is worrying. Not all schools can afford to challenge grades on a routine basis, so this opens up real inequities.
“NAHT welcomes the news that Ofqual are looking into marking - we need get this area right as a matter of high priority. Politicians also need to plan their changes carefully and patiently in future, so that schools can cope."
