GCSE resits: Two-thirds still have not passed by 19

Students taking Edexcel's higher tier GCSE maths in November needed just 18 per cent for a grade 4.

GCSE resit results published today show the proportion of learners achieving a grade 4 or higher in English and maths has dropped.

Overall, there were more than 97,550 entries across the two subjects between the AQA (51,342), Edexcel (42,586) and OCR (3,622) exam boards.

The proportion achieving a grade 4 or higher in English language in November 2019 with AQA was 30.8 per cent, with Edexcel  the proportion was 36.8 per cent while at OCR it stood at 49.9 per cent.
