What does GCSE stand for?

It stands for “General Certificate of Secondary Education”. It's a set of exams in England, which passed by students at the age of 15-16.

What was the mistake made by OCR?

It was a question on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in which the family background of a key character, Tybalt, was mixed up - it suggested he is a Montague when in fact he is a Capulet.

What made the parents absolutely fuming?

The parents counted that the situation was unfair. Their children had stumbled over the question wasting time and getting nervous and if the error hasn't been made the result of the exam would've been higher.

What is the right behaviour of OCR in the situation to decrease the damage from the error in the opinion of Russell Hobby?
