Commenting ahead of the publication of tomorrows A-level results, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers union in the UK, said:

“The publication of this year’s A-levels results will once again be against a backdrop of uncertainty, not only from the impact of recent qualification reforms, but also amidst the now seemingly annual ritual of claims about inaccurate marking and questionable standards.

“Every year young people and teachers who have worked hard throughout the course see their efforts undermined by those who wish to detract from the achievements of our public education system which delivers, year on year, world-class standards of education.

“Teachers and pupils should be congratulated without reservation for what they have achieved.

“Our young people are working hard under tremendous pressure and despite poorly planned reforms, constant criticism, cuts to pay and a rising tide of excessive bureaucracy and workload, teachers are continuing to deliver the best for pupils.

“Tomorrow’s results will have been achieved despite the Government’s reforms, not because of them.”
