#AceDailyNews says here’s todays Newspaper Headlines: Afghan horror: One of the Guardian’s front page stories is written by an unnamed 22-year-old female journalist who is on the run in Afghanistan after the #Taliban captured her city in the north of the country: She describes fleeing, wearing a burqa, in a car with her uncle, and also on foot to avoid #Taliban check points. She says she is scared because the militants are forcing families to give their daughters as wives for their fighters.

Next year’s A-level students should not worry about suffering a “sudden shock” amid a plan to fix A-level inflation, the i paper suggests. It says ministers are keen not to judge next year’s students harshly, given they will be up against 2021 and 2020 cohorts for jobs and universities. It signals a “red flag for social mobility” as Tuesday’s results show widening inequality.
BBC News: Staff:
The Daily Telegraph says traditional alphabetical A-level grades could be swapped for numerical results similar to GCSEs. It says one MP has said a gap in attainment between private and state school pupils – and other groups – could be a “national disaster”. Any plans to change the grading system would take time to implement, the paper notes. Its leader article warns that closing schools during the pandemic was a “disaster and one that must not be repeated”.
The gap between private and state school A-level pupils leads the Guardian. The paper says teacher-assessed grades “disproportionately benefited those at independent schools”. Meanwhile, it says exam regulator Ofqual has vowed that formal exams would return next year.
The Metro leads on the news that a US woman has filed a civil case against the Duke of York, alleging he sexually assaulted her when she was 17-years-old. Prince Andrew has consistently denied Virginia Giuffre’s claims and his spokeswoman said there was “no comment” on the case. The Metro says the development is “enough to make a duke sweat” – a reference to the defence Prince Andrew gave during a 2019 BBC Newsnight interview.
“Downfall of the duke?” asks the Daily Mail. It says Prince Andrew “stays silent” after Ms Giuffre’s civil case was filed in New York. It claims the Queen is facing a fresh crisis as her second son joins her at Balmoral Castle. The paper also reports the “fury over grade gap” following Tuesday’s A-level results.
Prince Andrew could face a further civil case in the US from another woman, the Daily Mirror claims. It says Johanna Sjoberg could air allegations – which the duke denies – in court.
BBC show Strictly Come Dancing has been hit by Covid after a dancer tested positive, according to the Sun. The positive test could throw the launch programme into jeopardy, the paper claims.
Uplifting news on the front of the Daily Express as the paper reports scientists have championed a “fantastic development” in treating dementia. The paper says the breakthrough could identify changes in the brain and mean patients get results “in one day and save the NHS millions”.
The Financial Times leads with the passing of a sweeping $1tn infrastructure bill by the US Senate. The paper says a “rare display of bipartisanship” saw the bill pass 69-30. It now has to pass the more divided House of Representatives.
The Daily Star says scientists have found south Asian food could help women become “extra saucy” in the bedroom.
Most of Wednesday’s front pages express alarm at the widening gap between state and private schools shown in Tuesday’s A-level results.
The Guardian says the gap has grown to its widest in the modern era, with 70% of students in independent schools receiving A or A* – while only around 40% of pupils in state schools managed the same.
There’s also concern about grade inflation after nearly 45 per cent of all students received A and A*. Before the pandemic, in 2019, the proportion was less than 26%.
The i paper, the Times and the Daily Telegraph report that one idea being considered as a solution is to scrap the alphabetical grades – from A to E – and replace them with numbers.
PA MediaGavin Williamson has warned he knows where the bodies are buried amid claims he will be demoted, according to the Times
The Times says it has learned that the Education Secretary Gavin Williamson is likely to be replaced by the Equalities Minister Kemi Badenoch.
According to the article Mr Williamson – who ran Boris Johnson’s leadership campaign – is fighting to avoid being axed from the cabinet entirely.
But the paper says the former chief whip has told colleagues that he “knows where the bodies are” and would be a dangerous enemy to have on the backbenches.
Several papers report that Prince Andrew has joined the Queen at Balmoral Castle a day after an American woman, Victoria Giuffre, sued him in New York claiming she was forced to have sex with him when she was under age, which he denies.
The Mail says the civil case could drag on for years and become a millstone around his – and the Royal Family’s – neck.
There is chaos on the Strictly dancefloor, claims The Sun, which reports the new series of the BBC One show could be delayed after one of the participants – professional dancer Nadya Bychkova – tested positive for coronavirus. Many of the cast and crew cannot keep dancing but must now self-isolate for 10 days.
