Snaresbrook school wins free GCSE English re-mark after grade boundary dispute
GCSE marks at one Redbridge school have already risen after a re-mark of English Literature papers.
Many students were disappointed with marks that fell well below predictions on results day after grade boundaries were raised.
The AQA examination board will now re-mark all English Literature papers from Forest School, in Snaresbrook, for free.
The board decided the move was needed after reviewing individual exams.
The proportion of pupils who achieved A* grades has risen from 35 per cent on results day, to 37 per cent last week following the first re-mark.

A proportion of pupils receiving A* and A grades has also risen to 72 per cent.
Jonathan Mitchell, director of teaching and learning, said: “Our pupils have worked so hard and this is reflected in the fact that the most common GCSE grade across the board is the A* grade.”
