Education Secretary Gavin Williams was forced to announce a dramatic u-turn and apologise earlier when he announced the government would give all students in England their predicted grades.
The government had faced harsh criticism after 40% of predicted grades were moderated down, with the lower grades disproportionately being given to lower-income students.
The past few days have seen chaos as frustrated students who were given lower grades were forced to give up on their dream university places.
The Scottish government was the first to reverse its moderation process, with Wales and Northern Ireland following suit, meaning the whole of the UK is now on a level playing field.
Now with predicted grades being given to all, what's going to happen next for students?
