HC Deb 21 December 1988 vol 144 c285W
Mr. Higgins

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what information he has as to how many constituents of the right hon. Member for Worthing have still not received their GCSE results; and if he will make a statement.

Mrs. Rumbold

The independent GCSE examining groups, which are responsible for issuing results, are not aware that any results for summer 1988 GCSE examinations are still outstanding. As in previous years, some results remain to be confirmed because they are the subject of appeals. The groups have undertaken to deal with these appeals as quickly as possible.
