The Secretary of State for Education has no powers to issue a direction to awarding organisations.

Directions from Ofqual to examination boards are a matter for Ofqual. The Chief Regulator, Dr Jo Saxton, has confirmed that she would welcome an enquiry directly from the hon. Member for Houghton and Sunderland South, so that Ofqual can understand more fully the request and ensure that it is of most assistance in answering the question.
