THERE was confusion on A level results day after a college and exam provider accused each other of failing to provide grades.

A Level and BTEC students at Heart of Worcestershire College were kept waiting for their results for more than 24 hours.

According to the college, this is because exam provider Pearson failed to provide the results. Pearson then accused the college of not providing the data in time, something the college took to Twitter to deny. In a detailed Twitter thread, the college said: “We are aware of a recent Tweet from Pearson stating 'A few centres didn’t meet our deadline for submitting grades, rank orders or Head of Centre Declarations. Where that happened we informed centres that it could mean a delay in providing results to students. We’re working around the clock to provide those results as soon as we can.'

"We would like to be clear with all our students awaiting results today that along with many other colleges, we did meet all of the Pearson deadlines given.”
