The House of Commons have just published a handy summary of all of the changes that are currently taking place in the English education examination system. This includes the new reformed GCSEs, the new 9-1 grading scale, the new ‘good pass’ of a Grade 5, the new decoupled AS levels, the new linear A-levels, the new accountability measures as well as the fact that ICT will no longer be a subject from 2017. Oh and did I mention the National Curriculum…and that IGSCEs are being reformed as well…No need to worry, it’ll all be settled down by 2020!
Looking back, looking forwards…
