Coffee House Shots – a Spectator podcast: Levelling down: the results day fiasco


Wait until we see the NCEA disaster in NZ

August 13, 2020

It’s A-Level results day and much as expected, a large minority of A-Level grades from across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland have been downgraded. For some schools and colleges, more than half of their students have been affected. On the podcast, Cindy Yu talks to Fraser Nelson and Mary Curnock Cook, former head of Ucas about the government’s approach, educational inequality, and why a new cap on university places may have made the situation a whole lot worse.

About this podcast
