OCR GCSE English Literature Exam Error Update

Article image

One of the country's biggest exam boards, OCR, has admitted to an error in Friday's English Literature GCSE exam, taken by around 14,000 teenagers. The mistake related to a question on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in which the family background of a key character, Tybalt, was mixed up. It suggested he is a Montague when in fact he is a Capulet. The board apologised and said no candidates would lose out, but head teachers said the error was "serious".
