Becky Ricketts, President of NUS Wales, said:
“This announcement gives certainty and will come as a relief to some students. However, those who did not achieve grades they were satisfied with at AS Level will still be concerned about how their grades have been calculated.
“It remains to be seen whether this measure will prevent a results postcode lottery as was seen in Scotland, and we will closely monitor the situation.
“We welcome the announcement of a free appeals process for students in Wales. This new process must be developed rapidly to enable students to quickly appeal their results and make important decisions for the future.”
