Labour's education spokesman Stephen Twigg has expressed concern that the government's proposals to reform GCSEs will create a "two-tier" education system in the UK.
It is after the Education Secretary Michael Gove confirmed that GCSEs would be scrapped in England and Wales - and that if everything went to plan, children would sit a new exam from 2016.
Twigg also called for summer exams to be re-marked after many students received lower grades than expected. Thousands of pupils were denied a C grade when the exams they sat in June were marked more harshly than those sat by pupils who took them in January.
