Abigail Ward, 16, who attends Gildredge House school in Eastbourne, East Sussex, was told by exam board OCR that she had made 'obscene racial comments' while answering her Religious Studies exam in June.

On the subject of halal butchers, the student had written, '...which I find absolutely disgusting.'

In an appeal, her school explained that her comment was in relation to her vegetarian beliefs, not her opinions on Muslims.

Her mother, Layla Ward, said the examiner has been 'over-zealous, over-righteous'.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, the 36-year-old said the family were shocked by the decision to disqualify her daughter, and the exam board has since been overturned the decision.

She said: 'Abbey is an animal lover and a very strict vegetarian.

'It made me angry … when asked a question in the exam, you can't even express your feelings.
