Will history GCSE results drop this summer?

OFQUAL has warned that tough new GCSEs in history and English literature will hit pupils’ grades this summer.

In a letter to the exam boards, Ofqual said work to “strengthen” the qualifications could lead to “more variation in individual schools’ results”.

The number of teenagers gaining top grades in the subjects could drop when results are published next month as schools try to adapt to the demands of the reformed syllabuses. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.
