MORE than 2,300 pupils will receive different grades for their English language GCSE exam after papers were regraded.

TheWJEC examining board made the changes over the weekend, after Education Minister Leighton Andrews said grade boundaries had been set in a way that was unfair to candidates in Wales.

This means 1,202 pupils will see their grade jump from a D to a C, while 598 pupils will see their grade change from a C to a B.

Overall, 2,386 pupils will receive raised grades.

It is believed pupils will receive their new grades this morning.
