16 min listen

After a week of feet dragging, the Scottish government has today dramatically U-turned on downgrading exam results for 76,000 students. Those who received lower marks will now revert to the original predicted grades given by their teachers.

Cindy Yu talks to Alex Massie and Kate Andrews. Also on the podcast: the latest ONS jobs figures.
