Ofqual to adjust grading standards for French and German GCSE

We're so pleased to see this update from Ofqual regarding GCSE grading standards for French and German.

Dr Michelle Meadows, Director of Strategy, Risk and Research, said: "Building on our extensive body of work, we have looked at this issue from a wide range of different perspectives. We are satisfied that a sufficiently strong case exists for us to intervene to adjust grading standards in GCSE French and German. We are talking to exam boards about how best to implement this adjustment."
