When an undercover reporter asked Geoff Gibb, the principal examiner leading the OCR’s GCSE maths seminar, about competing awarding bodies, he said: “The awarding bodies, of course although they are charities, officially designated as charities, they still want to run at a profit.

The Edexcel examiner went on to explain that coursework was where Edexcel “definitely scores; we let you do anything you want at A2 [second year of A-level].
