  • Hundreds of thousands of BTec students have been left in the dark about when they will receive their exam results after they were delayed last night, with the schools minister unable to guarantee the day they will be published.

    Nick Gibb, the minister for school standards, told ITV News he expects students will receive their grades next week, but said “this is a matter for Pearson, the exam board”.

    On Wednesday evening, hours before students were due to receive their results, BTec exam board Pearson instructed schools to hold the results amid concerns about “unfairness” in the system.

    Pearson said it would work “urgently” to get the grades out to young people, but did not but a timescale on when that might happen.
