Tes Podcast 13/11/20: Varying Levels Of Coronavirus Cases In Schools Have Called Into Question The Suitability Of Running Gcse & A-level Exams In 2021

Join the Tes news team as we reveal huge regional differences in coronavirus rates in schools, and discuss how this could affect league tables.

We also look at calls from Labour, in light of this evidence of varying disruption, for a "regional dimension" to the way 2021 GCSE and A-level results are graded.

Yet the physical staging of exams could yet be in jeopardy due to a shortage of invigilators, we reveal. 

And we discuss why hundreds of "pissed-off" senior teachers are calling the NEU teaching union's advice line asking "how can I leave?" 

Finally, we look ahead to tonight's Tes Awards.
