Overhauled music GCSEs and A Levels to be taught from 2016

9 April 2014

The Department for Education (DfE) has announced today that the ‘reformed’ GCSE and A Level qualifications in music, as well as overhauled syllabuses in religious studies, design & technology, drama, dance and PE, will be taught in schools from September 2016.

It marks the first time that Michael Gove has put arts subjects into the same timeframe for reform as subjects such as English, maths and science. Revised syllabuses for the majority of subjects taken at GCSE and A Level are now set to be taught from either 2015 or 2016, with subjects such as maths, English, science, computer science and history remaining at the vanguard of Gove’s reform project.

In his preface to the statement, the Education Secretary said: ‘Our changes will make these qualifications more ambitious, with greater stretch for the most able; will prepare young people better for the demands of employment and further study; will address the pernicious damage caused by grade inflation and dumbing down, which have undermined students’ achievements for far too long; and will give pupils, parents, teachers, universities and employers greater confidence in the integrity and reliability of our qualifications system.
