Hours before thousands of pupils in England, Wales and Northern Ireland received their A Level and B-Tech grades, the Education Secretary Gavin Williamson, apologised for the disruption to schooling in England.

It comes after last minute changes to the appeals process for exam results, by ministers who are anxious to avoid the controversy that’s unfolded in Scotland.

Students in England and Northern Ireland have been told they can use mock exam results as a basis for any appeal.

However pupils in Wales have been told their AS results from last year will be used if they’re higher than their grades tomorrow.
The changes have led to confusion and controversy.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting by education editor Branwen Jeffreys and political correspondent Chris Mason.
