300,000 pupils missing out on good GCSEs
"In the final test of Labour's education record, it emerged that more than 300,000 pupils failed to score five A* to C grades, including the vital subjects of English and mathematics.
"Figures showed that more than half of boys - 51.1 per cent - missed out on a raft of decent GCSE grades as they fell further behind girls at the age of 16.
"The Coalition claimed that the previous Government had failed to narrow the historic and entrenched gap in standards between rich and poor areas.
"It was revealed that pupils in the best-performing local authority, Kensington and Chelsea, west London, were almost twice as likely to gain good grades as those in Knowsley, Merseyside."
