GCSE results, exams, GCSEs

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.
