Research has claimed that students who score a B grade in A-level maths today would only have received an E grade 50 years ago.

But there is no evidence that standards have fallen since the 1990s, according to the study by academics at Loughborough University.

The research involved experts assessing pairs of papers, looking at A-level maths papers from the 1960s, 1990s and 2010s at grade A, B and E.

The study concluded that a grade B in a maths paper from the 2010s (which are now being replaced by the new qualifications) was equivalent to an E in the 1960s, but no different from the 1990s.
