Thousands to resit English GCSEs next month


More than 45,000 students will re-sit their English GCSEs next month, after a row about the grading of this year's exams.

The total represents around 1 in 14 of those who took the qualification earlier this year.

Many students complained that they had been downgraded, and had missed the chance of places at university or on apprenticeship schemes.
