Protests have taken place over three consecutive days in London by A-level students demonstrating against what they believe is an injustice, which saw schools’ historic performances used to standardise results in England through an algorithm, which saw 40% of grades downgraded.

Boris Johnson has been urged to intervene as headteachers came out in favour of a Scotland-style solution using teachers’ assessments. Late on Saturday, Ofqual announced a review of the appeals process just hours after it published its criteria based on mock exam results.

Not quite sure if I'm reading it correctly: is it proposed that exam results will be altered based on teachers' assessments?
What is the "Scotland-style solution" and how long has this been in place?
