Changes to GCSE and A Levels

Commenting on the consultation, Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers’ union, said:

“Once again secondary school teachers are faced with piecemeal reform of GCSE and A level qualifications. The proposed dates for last awards to be granted for some GCSEs, alongside the dates for the continuation of related subjects, will cause confusion for students and their families and complicate career choices. ”

“Already GCSEs have been reformed to become linear only, which is more appropriate to some learning styles than others. Many practical GCSEs will not fit the traditional pedagogy favoured by the Education Secretary. ”

“Young people need the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects at GCSE and A Level, all of which should carry equal status.”
