GCSE Grades Boundaries to Be Lowered

An exam board has told The Sunday Times that this year’s GCSE grades boundaries will be lowered to prevent the massive dip they predict will be between last year’s results and this year’s results caused by the former education secretary Michael Gove making the exams tougher. To break this down, Children getting their GCSE results this summer will need fewer marks to get a C rather than a D, or an A rather than a B than in previous years. This change will indeed make comparing year on year results futile.

As parents, do you think it is worth making this change? Should GCSE grade boundaries be lowered if marks are down this year?
