Andrews dismisses GCSE re-grading 'incompetent' claim

Former Education Minister Leighton Andrews has dismissed claims the Welsh government was "authoritarian and incompetent" over the re-grading of exam papers in 2012.

Nearly 2,400 English language pupils got better results after the review.

Ex WJEC acting chair David Lewis said Mr Andrews dismissed advice about the complexities re-grading would cause.

Mr Andrews said Mr Lewis' comments demonstrated the necessity for the WJEC governance to change.
