More than 80 per cent of schools that responded to a Kent survey have said their GCSE results were worse than expected.
This was a similar figure to the 79 per cent increase in D grades for GCSE English in the county.
Kent County Council has shared the data with Parliament’s education committee to support their claim the grade boundaries were unfairly moved.
Mike Whiting, KCC Cabinet member for education, said: “The results have been very hard on so very many young people. We promised that we would speak up for schools and children in Kent.”
