JFS pupils resit GCSEs

Six per cent of JFS GCSE students are to retake English exams in the wake of the controversy over marking.

Eighteen students out of the 300-strong year group will resit their English GCSE on November 7. Almost as many students (16) retook English exams in January.

More than 45,000 pupils nationwide are retaking GCSE English following the row over tougher grading.
