Ofqual inquiry orders exam change

The exams regulator has said a GCSE paper is to be withdrawn, following newspaper allegations that examiners had revealed the content of future exams at seminars held for teachers.

Ofqual said "inappropriate information" about the Information and Communications Technology paper had been shared.

The exam, which was set by the Welsh exam board WJEC, will now be amended and sat in March.
