SENIOR Conservative MPs are calling on Boris Johnson to delay the publication of GCSE results for up to two weeks amid the A-level algorithm fury.
The PM is reportedly facing pressure from top Tories over the results fiasco that saw thousands of upset students receiving lower than expected A-level grades after exams were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
An algorithm devised by exams regulator Ofqual was used to determine A-level results, and the same system is set to be used to decide GCSE scores.
Senior Conservatives have said GCSE results should be delayed so the grades can be revised.
Gavin Williamson has been told to “get a grip” on the crisis as he was warned MPs could go “on the warpath” over the issue.
The Education Secretary faced a triple whammy as a growing army of pupils, parents and Tories turned on him over the fiasco.
