The Guardian reports that exams regulator Ofqual was warned “at least a month ago” of “flaws” in the algorithm initially used to decide pupils’ A-Level results. “The regulator pressed ahead amid longstanding ministerial pressure to prevent grade inflation,” the paper says.
The Guardian leads on the same story quoting a senior government source as saying: “There are a variety of different ways to do this. The question is whether the US administration is ready. The ball is in the US’s court. It takes two to tango.”
