Two Thursdays bring to an end another exam season for students across the land. For many there will be relief and celebration, hard work being rewarded with good grades and well deserved places at universities and sixth forms. For some there will be disappointment and a need to rethink future plans.
This year there will be much more uncertainty for everyone completing GCSEs, as there are major changes to A-levels. Significant changes are also being made to GCSEs.
Sadly the politicians can’t leave things alone. There may be shortcomings in the exam system, but major changes are more likely to disrupt than enrich our children’s education. Here’s hoping that the latest changes won’t undermine the hard work and achievement of so many young people.
