UK Government Reverses Exam Results Decision Amid Algorithm “Anomalies”

Britain’s education secretary has reversed a decision over how to grade this year’s school exams in England, rejecting the grading system that had replaced the tests cancelled because of the ongoing CCP virus pandemic.

On Monday, the government shelved a mathematical model used by exam regulator Ofqual to moderate and standardize the student grade predictions, called Centre Assessed Grades (CAGs), that were made and submitted to Ofqual by teachers.

The government has now reverted to only using the CAGs submitted by teachers to award exam results.
