Wrong results

Issue No. 1738

The Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA), the body responsible for last year's exams crisis in Scotland where 17,000 pupils got the wrong results, has admitted that it could make mistakes on an even greater scale this year.

It has discovered 3 percent of errors in this year's list, compared to 2.7 percent last year. 'I don't feel that they are facing up to reality at all,' said Judith Gillespie, convenor of the Scottish Parent Teacher Council.
