Investigation over Copland school A level error

An investigation has been launched at a school in north-west London after students were given incorrect information which meant they could not get into their university of choice.

The pupils at Copland Community School in Wembley were told their business studies course amounted to two A-levels - when it was in fact only worth one.

Student Harrison Mathias said when he found out he was depressed as he had studied so hard; while Dr Richard Marshall, headteacher at the school, said the mistake should not have happened.

Susan Hamlyn, from the Good Schools Guide, said this mistake was not unheard of.
