October 30, 2020

Tens of thousands of school pupils are to have their exam results upgraded after the Scottish government agreed to accept teacher estimates of scores.

The government U-turn follows an outcry from pupils after a moderation system saw 125,000 estimated results being downgraded.

All results that were downgraded will now be withdrawn and replaced by the original estimates.

The move affects about 75,000 pupils across Scotland.

There had been claims that the moderation system unfairly penalised pupils at schools which had historically not performed as well.

And many pupils said they had been given lower grades than they had achieved in prelim exams at the start of the year.
