Gove blames Labour on GCSEs
The row over GCSE regrading was a result of Labour's educational legacy, according to Michael Gove.
The Education Secretary said the problems over resetting grade boundaries stemmed from "something that was designed by the last government and which we couldn’t change."
He also risked the anger of Welsh students by claiming that employers would not consider a 'C' grade there in the same light as one from an English student.
Speaking on Sky News' Murnaghan programme, Mr Gove said: "Students in Wales who say ‘I now have a C pass’ will be met by employers saying ‘Yes, I can see that it’s been upgraded, but this student in England secured it in an examination, through a marking regime which was palpably tougher’ and I think that’s a shame."
