  • A record number of pupils have been awarded top grades in their GCSEs after a Government U-turn meant results could be based on teachers’ estimated grades amid cancelled exams.

    Hundreds of thousands of teenagers received results on Thursday following major changes to marking, but around 200,000 Btec pupils did not get their grades amid a last-minute review of the marking system.

    More than one in four (25.9%) GCSE entries in England scored one of the three top grades this year, up from just over a fifth (20.7%) last summer, figures from exams regulator Ofqual show.

    The proportion receiving the top grades – at least a 7 or an A grade – is a record high based on available data following the decision to award grades based on teachers’ assessments, rather than an algorithm.
