Ex-minister was 'not fully aware of implications' says former WJEC chief

Former Education Minister Leighton Andrews has dismissed claims the Welsh government was "authoritarian and incompetent" over the re-grading of exam papers in 2012.

Nearly 2,400 English language pupils got better results after the review.

Ex WJEC acting chair David Lewis said Mr Andrews dismissed advice about the complexities re-grading would cause.

Mr Lewis told the BBC he did not think Mr Andrews was fully aware of the implications of what he was ordering.
