Video: GCSE results in Basingstoke
EXCITED teenagers collected their GCSE results across Basingstoke this morning.
Nationally there was a fall in the number of students achieving A* to C grades for the first time in 24-years.
However, concerns have been raised that students have been unfairly graded this year, particularly in the English papers.
Ofqual, England’s exam regulator has told exam boards they will have to justify any grades which are notably different to those given in previous years.
The Gazette ’s reporters and photographers have visited all 12 secondary school in the borough this morning, and a round-up of how they did, with pictures, will be in next Thursday’s Gazette.
Watch Kelly Tennant, 16, from Tudor Close, Bramley, opening her results in the video below.
The Everest Community Academy pupil achieved two A*s, eight Bs, one C and a distinction in BTEC PE. She told The Gazette: “I was really happy and shocked.”
