Considerable concern was expressed by headteachers about the unreliability of the marking of the national curriculum key stage 3 tests in English but we were assured by Nick Tate, chief executive of the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority, that "there were no problems with the tests or marking".

I have just received the results from the Northern Examinations and Assessment Board of the re-marking of the scripts of all our 130 candidates. Seventy were graded upwards (0 downwards).
