Exam boards apologise to students months after results were delayed

The heads of two major exam boards admitted teenagers were left “stressed and anxious” after thousands of exam results were delayed this summer.

The leaders of OCR and Pearson exam boards made a personal apology in front of MPs after many students taking vocational qualifications failed to be given grades on results days in August.
More than 10,000 BTEC results and 3,200 Cambridge Technical results were handed out late, delaying students from confirming college and university places and excluding some from the university clearing system.
