Just came out a few hours ago.
What do you guys think?
I just think the calendar would be impacted which isn’t good.

ikr exams are way harder than before, you can see the difference just through past papers for certain subjects like

Scrapping A Levels would be a heck of a lot more accurate, let's be honest.

They were bad enough, but now kids spend 2 years, and it can all go FUBAR in 1 exam on 1 day at the end, which itself is just a memory test race rather than application of knowledge in a realistic environment.

It's just a hackneyed way of faking that they've 'reformed' them to make them 'challenging' when all they've done is scrapped yearly exams to 2 years to increase the random chance element and pressure.
