Students wait all day for correct exam results.
The pupils at Dartmouth High School in West Bromwich, West Midlands, received marks lower than their actual grade following a miscalculation by the AQA exam board, the school said.
Headteacher Caroline Badyal said their revised results had now arrived at the school and students were being contacted. The exam board is believed to have calculated the grades without awarding marks for the students' coursework.
Mrs Badyal said: "We have this afternoon received the corrected exam results following a problem with a small number of students' grades this morning.
"We are now in the process of contacting students and parents to give them the revised grades."
This follows a blunder whereby 11 students from a top independent school had their university places put in jeopardy after they were wrongly given a zero mark for coursework.
The boys' coursework for A-levels in French, German and Spanish were marked as missing after a mix-up at Magdalen College School, Oxford.
