"But Mr Balls insisted that Ofqual had advised that, as of 28 July, there were no widespread concerns about the quality of marks that would justify withholding the results at a national level"

From the BBC.

hmm

We're still missing the literacy papers (they were sent back due to poor marking). And I am fairly certain that we are far from the only school in that position. Why the hurry to issue the results? What is the point?

Our school is pulling itself out of special measures. Presumably althought the Maths and Science were very good and much improved, the lack of a literacy mark will look seriously poor.

There were a small group of schools (about 18?) that had NO KS2 results at all. Imagine that - all the prep, the hassle of the tests, the anticipation of results etc - only to be told"Sorry, we've lost your papers. We'll guess your results, ok?"

Its a disgrace.

news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/7543038.stm Jim Knight says don't worry the results are accurate and make a very pretty graph (he also said he didn't see a problem with having classes of 70+ pupils ...so we won't take his opinion )www.guardian.co.uk/education/2008/aug/05/sats.results
"Around 33,800 children did not receive English results on time and about 17,400 did not receive maths or science results."

Hard to see how the results are accurate when so many aren't even available yet hmm
