Education secretary announces consultation on proposed GCSE reforms

11 June 2013

The Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, has announced a consultation on proposed subject content and assessment objectives for reformed GCSEs to be introduced for first teaching in September 2015 in England. Covering ancient languages, English language and literature, geography, history, mathematics, modern languages and sciences, it will run from 11 June to 20 August and asks general and subject-specific questions about whether the proposed content for GCSEs represents a demanding and fulfilling course of study for students who will take the qualifications. Music is not currently included in the consultation.
A parallel consultation on new regulatory requirements for the reformed GCSEs, such as assessment arangements, is being carried out by Ofqual. The main characteristics of the proposed reforms would be a return to more linear two-year courses ending in exams, with a much-reduced emphasis on modules, coursework and controlled assessment; and the introduction of a numeric marking system with a wider range of grades, that can differentiate more effectively between different levels of achievement.
Details of the proposals and consultation documents can be found on the Department for Education's website: http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/teachingandlearning/qualifications/gcses/a00225719/gsce-consultation
