GCSE results day

Its GCSE results day, and similar to A-Levels results last week yet again the radio and papers are reporting that it record breaking with more and more students getting the top grades, and following this are various cries of the exams getting easier, and other justifications for this trend. This year it has been reported that the increase in higher grades is due to learners doing less GCSEs on average, than in previous years.

Why can’t we as a nation entertain the possibility that maybe (just maybe) the increase in top grades is actually due to improvements in the quality of the teaching and learning, and some of the initiatives that Government have invested have actually achieved what they were supposed to achieve?
