Scrapping GCSEs and A LevelsWatch
Instead we will leave school/college with 'school-based assessment and recognition of ahcievements in sport, the arts and voluntary work'.
What do people think about this?
(am trying to do a poll but think I am missing something...?)
Whether or not totally scrapping GCSE and A-Level is the answer I don't know, as I believe it would be disheartening for students to keep working, and getting nothing out of it until say the 5th year of study - a sense of distraction kicks in, and there is danger of attainment level dropping off towards the end of such a course, under the new, proposed scheme.

Also I don't think these new As levels are a good idea either, they seem to be an unnecessary complicaction.

There are no problems with the system at the moment. In fact, it's probably the best it's ever been. But, year after year, someone in power always likes to make changes - simply because they can.
Wouldn't it be nice to speak to a 70-year-old who has the same qualifications you do. Then, you would be able to compare results, makings things easier for employers.
If they're going to make changes, they should simplify the system we have at the moment - i.e. GCSE = academic secondary study, VCSE = vocational secondary study, GCE = academic advanced study, VCE = vocational advanced study.
so say I'll have the GCSEs...and then I'll get to college and then they'll change it to 'no more A Levels' -does that mean I will have to revert to doing subjects that I would have dropped- say RE/PE etc that are totally unrelated to what I have taken...?
