Education minister to work with universities

The education minister says he'll be working with universities to ensure Manx students don't miss out on 'the places they deserve'.

After some students were left with lower than expected grades from Cambridge International, the exam board announced a u-turn late on Monday (17 August), confirming no-one will be given grades lower than their predicted result.
