Maurice Bradley MLA, has welcomed a statement from the Department of Education and Minister Peter Weir that students getting GCSE results this week will be awarded the grades predicted by their teachers.
Bradley, a member of the Assembly’s Education Committee said: “I am pleased that the Minister has taken on Board concerns from parents, teachers and his own Education Committee and with the co-operation of the CCEA has been minded to change the criteria for this week’s GCSE results.
“I had written to the Minister over the weekend, voicing my concerns and those of the many parents that had been in contact with me since Thursday, regarding the A and AS results.
“It is my hope that this criteria can now be applied for those students who will be appealing their A/As Level results. “
