GCSE results: Find out all you need to know in the TES podcast

News article image

Join the TES team as we discuss this week’s GCSE results, which suffered the biggest ever decline in A* to C grades since the assessments were introduced in 1988. We discuss the reasons behind the drop, we talk the further decline of languages, the effects of Progress 8 and the why girls are pulling even further ahead than boys. We also take a look at a striking piece in this week’s magazine about a US teacher and her class who was faced with a student wielding a loaded gun. Tune in and enjoy.
