GCSEs Will Not Be Re-Graded

Hundreds of Cornish students will not have their GCSEs remarked.
It is after the row about English results being downgraded.
A court has ruled exam boards did nothing wrong when they changed boundaries.
More than a third of schools in the Duchy have been hit by the row.
Most of the complaints have been about English grades, but not all.
Ellie Glanville from St Columb Major said: "I sat my GCSEs last year. My predicted grade for Science was C and I ended up getting an E. When you do get them and they're that low you just feel all the effort that you have put in has gone to waste.
She said some of her friends were devastated: "There were people there crying. If you're going to make a plan, don't change it in the middle of the school year. Let them know beforehand so they can prepare for the change instead of complete disappointment at the end of it when everyone's put in all that hard work."
Cornish teachers have warned that not regrading results could harm students' futures.
Brett Elliott, Principal at Bodmin College, said: "It's a system that's fair, consistent and transparent for everyone. The problem we really have in education is this constant moving of goalposts, which for me, and I think for the staff here at Bodmin College, and certainly for the students and parents, is very unfair.
"We're very, very enthusiastic for them to get the grades they deserve. And ultimately, I suppose, the success measure is being able to move on successfully to courses of their choice, and success at GCSEs opens or closes doors for you."3:36pm 13th February 2013
