I want to
We apologise wholeheartedly for an error on today’s OCR GCSE English Literature paper (J352/02).
To ensure all students are treated fairly, we will put things right when the exam is marked and graded. To do this, we combine feedback from our examiners with statistics to measure the potential impact on students. We are then able to make appropriate adjustments – including to the grade boundaries if necessary – to ensure no-one is disadvantaged.
Once again, we are sorry for this error on one of our exam papers and we are investigating how it got through our assurance processes as a matter of urgency. We are liaising directly with schools, and advise students and families to talk to their teachers for further information.
Here is the letter we sent to schools and colleges on 2 June outlining our plans for ensuring students affected by the error on the GCSE English Literature paper get the results they deserve.
