    The exams regulator for England, Ofqual, has pointed the finger of blame at ministers for the chaos surrounding this year’s results. Ofqual’s chairman says ministers were warned that the emergency grading system would lead to major problems. Roger Taylor added that ministers were advised to hold socially-distanced exams or delay them. And if those options were unworkable, then using calculated grades would be the worst case scenario. Labour said it was now clear that the education secretary Gavin Williamson had been responsible for the mess. Millions of pupils in England and Wales started to return to their classrooms today.
