GCSE English resit results cold comfort for young people

Commenting on the results of GCSE English resits which came out today, Russell Hobby, the general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT), said: “While we congratulate young people on their resit results we also remember those who have had to change their education plans to redress the mistakes of others, following the GCSE marking scandal in the summer.

“The NAHT will continue to highlight the plight of these young people. In particular, we are concerned about those who sat GCSE English in the summer and were so disheartened by the results that they left full-time education for good.

“We are anxiously awaiting the outcome of the GCSE legal challenge and we hope for a positive outcome for all young people.”
