Inquiry as WJEC school examiners suspended


Two WJEC school examiners have been suspended after the Daily Telegraph secretly filmed them telling teachers at a seminar what areas of the syllabus wouldn't come up in exams.

It is alleged they broke rules when they advised the teachers in England on the topics for future exams.

Eighty-one per cent of children in Wales take GCSEs run by the exam board and 7% of pupils in England sit their exams.

The UK's education Minister Michael Gove has now ordered an inquiry and Welsh education minister Leighton Andrews is calling on the exam board to answer the claims.
