University chaos as places in doubt and Cambridge ask students to defer

EDUCATION Secretary Gavin Williamson is facing calls to resign from his own party following his chaotic exam grades u-turn.

Williamson had to apologise and promise A level and GCSE grades based on teacher estimates rather than his computerised system which downgraded results.

Angry Tory MPs said the “utter shambles” had shattered confidence in the Government and called for Mr Williamson to be sacked.

England ditched the A-level and GCSE results’ algorithm in favour of teachers’ scores and centre-assessed grades.

The system came under heavy scrutiny last week after many students saw their grades reduced significantly – meaning some missed out on university places.

Yet, this has left universities uncertain if they can offer students their places with Cambridge even asking those who had already had spots confirmed to defer for a year.
