A-level reforms- asking the wrong questions?
After a long time, this is my first discussion thrown up here, so bear with me!
I wanted to start a discussion about the prevalence and effect of re-takes in A-level exams today, and what might change if A-level reforms are brought in as a result of the Cambridge Assessment research, which I blogged about on Help Me Investigate Education)
There are a huge number of issues that don’t seem to be key aims, like the fact that A-levels don’t solely prepare students for tertiary education, along with the fact that re-takes are over-utilised and under-monitored, but most importantly, are free at some institutions but not at others.
I don’t know, I’m mostly curious to see what the Cambridge Review brings to the table at the end of the month. Does anyone have any predictions?
