Latest education U-turn: ABacc plans revised

15 April 2013

The government has dropped plans which would have prevented arts and creative A levels from counting in the proposed ‘ABacc’ league tables, modelled on the controversial EBacc performance measure at GCSE.

Under the proposed ABacc, schools would have been measured by the number of students achieving ABB at A level in three of the five EBacc subjects (maths, English, science, a language and history or geography). Now, only two out of three A levels need to be in these subjects to qualify for the ABacc, leaving room for one creative subject such as music.

The Incorporated Society of Musicians, which has campaigned against the EBacc, said: ‘It is vital we now show MPs that the anti-arts Ebacc and ABacc measures should either include creative subjects or be dropped – because the Department for Education has shown how easy it is to change big things without a word.’

The Institute of Career Guidance recently called the ABacc ‘a very crude measure’, saying students ‘may be persuaded to take subjects not because they are right for the individual, but because it may lead to a higher percentage in the performance measures for the institution, regardless of the pupils’ aspirations.’
