Kate Green – 2020 Comments on Timing of GCSE Results

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Education Secretary, on 18 August 2020.

Only a day after the Government were dragged in to a screeching U-turn, we have seen fresh confusion on what will happen to young people in the days ahead.

The repeated incompetence of the Education Secretary and this government are creating confusion and unease for a generation of young people and their families. If young people do not know all of their grades they could be concerned about losing college and apprenticeship places. This is not acceptable.

It is time for him to provide immediate clarity, and ensure that young people receive all of their grades on Thursday.
