OCR English literature exam, 26 May 2017

Ofqual's statement about the error in OCR's English literature exam paper.

placeholder

We are very disappointed to learn of the error in OCR’s English literature exam paper today. Incidents of this nature are unacceptable and we understand the frustration and concern of the students who may have been affected.

We will be scrutinising how OCR intends to identify and minimise the impact on these students. We will be closely monitoring OCR’s investigation of how this incident occurred and seeking reassurance regarding its other papers this summer.


Ofqual does not see exam boards’ examination papers in advance of the tests being sat.
