§ Mr. Evennett
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations he has received concerning this summer's GCSE examination results; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Eggar
My right hon. and learned Friend and I have received five representations on this issue. We would expect inquiries about individual results which cannot be resolved through the appeals mechanisms of the examining groups to be addressed to the independent appeals authority for school examinations.
