The survey reported that almost all of the teachers reported issues on the grading of GCSE and A Levels. The TES survey said.
An impossible task was a common theme. See here for our GCSE Private candidates page.
In the poll of more than 2,800 grading GCSE and A level teachers – another 50 per cent report "lots of problems" and say there are finding it "very difficult".
How this will effect private candidates is unknown. However, they are usually treated differently and have a lower priorty in a school. So it is without doubt that there will be wide discrepancies.
