Students have mounted a flood of legal challenges against their botched A level grades.

Exam bosses tore up appeals advice hours after releasing it.

And experts warned of an even bigger disaster on Thursday as millions of GCSEs are expected to be downgraded. Seething Tories broke ranks to blast Mr Williamson’s handling of the crisis.

Ruth Davidson, the acting Scottish Tory leader, said the disaster must be “gripped”.

She told Times Radio: “The Education Secretary needs to be telling people what’s going on and to be telling Ofqual what is going to happen.”

Tory peer and ex-Education Secretary Lord Baker attacked the flawed algorithm used to dish out results.
