Exams regulator Ofqual has posted an update on GCSE English and maths results in the November series.

In the blog post, Ofqual states: ‘Overall results for the November series for GCSE English language and maths have been published by JCQ. This includes a breakdown of results for each subject. As the cohorts are unlikely to be representative of those entering in a typical November or summer series, it is not possible to make direct comparisons between the outcomes this November and in previous years – or between outcomes in November and summer.

It is also not possible to make meaningful comparisons between results for different exam boards. As in any exam series, one exam board might have a very able entry for a subject and see far more students getting higher grades, while another exam board might have a weaker entry and might see much lower overall results.’
