I've posted this here rather than two posts, one in each section.

Exam result details now obtainable for free under GDPR

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-45343286

"Students in the UK will now have the right to obtain key information about their exam results for free, says the Information Commissioner's Office.

Exam boards must provide marks, examiner comments and appeals panel minutes for tests including GCSEs, A-levels, Highers and university exams.

The new rules cover this summer's tests and come from the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation.

The move could cause "problems for the exam bodies", one expert told the BBC."

I haven't read the article but cat amongst pigeons springs to mind...!! I wonder if they have included the all iumportant phrase "in a timely manner" as well? Important that people get the access freely and quickly enough that if a place in 6th Form or Uni matters, that it can affect that!
