Join Richard Vaughan and TES reporter Stephen Exley as they delve into this year's GCSE results.
We hear from heads Geoff Barton and Dame Joan McVittie to get their views on what was a disappointing year for them.
We caught up with Brian Lightman, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, who said his members were angry by results following yet more tinkering to the exam system.
And we got a broader perspective from Mark Dawe, chief exec of one of the country's largest exam boards, OCR.
