More than 1,000 teenagers in the UK are believed to have sat the religious studies test paper which challenged pupils to assess the reasons behind anti-Semitism.

The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance, which set the exam, said the question acknowledged that "some people hold prejudices" -- and did not attempt to justify them. However, the move has prompted criticism from the Government and religious leaders.

Education Secretary Michael Gove told the Jewish Chronicle: "To suggest that anti-Semitism can ever be explained, rather than condemned, is insensitive and, frankly, bizarre. AQA needs to explain how and why this question was included in an exam paper."
