News Article: January A Levels to end, in an effort to end re-sit culture

While I struggle to come to terms with Michael Gove as our Education Minister, I applaud this move wholeheartedly.

I believe that the personal development that students need to undergo between taking GCSE exams to taking A level exams, requires time. It is a nonsense to expect children to gain that maturity of thought by January of Year 12. I am pleased to see a reduction in the number of exams – perhaps the ones that are left can return to having value.
