Boards failing

6th August 2004 at 01:00
No wonder teenagers and staff are incensed at having to wait for English results (TES, July 23) Dates, targets and exam deadlines determine school life and it is imperative to have everything completed on time. How hypocritical of exam boards to fail schools. You'd expect those in charge to get their timing right.
