A-level shake-up

A-level shake-up
Top universities will supervise tough new A-level courses under plans confirmed by Michael Gove today.

The Education Secretary wants to abolish reliance on coursework and modular exams taken throughout the two-year course, in a bid to end the 'resit culture' and the alleged 'dumbing down' of exams.

The changes will mean pupils from 2015 will take exams at the end of two-year courses.

In a letter to exam regulator Ofqual, Mr Gove said A-levels in their current form did not help students to develop a "deep understanding" of their subjects.

But Brian Lightman of the Association of School and College Leaders said: "This is a classic case of fixing something that isn't broken."
