Review of GCSE English – documents now online
Wednesday 10 October 2012
At the beginning of September the Minister for Education, John O’Dowd, asked the Regulator to look into concerns expressed by some schools here regarding the summer 2012 GCSE English grades. He asked that CCEA report to him on any issues with the subject awards that might have impacted adversely on GCSE students here.
Having received the Regulator’s report, the Minister has announced his acceptance of all of the recommendations therein. Read the Minister’s statement.
CCEA would like to thank all of the schools and colleges who kindly provided feedback to inform our investigations. It helped greatly in gaining an appreciation of the issues surrounding GCSE English awarding and grade outcomes this summer. CCEA will be in touch with schools and colleges in the near future with further information.
