Oh no. Those tests are post-degree qualification.

To me, there should be the following general exams:

1. Common Entrance
2. GCSE
3. ABS
4. Post-degree licensing exams.

I see.
I think that if Rishi really wants to emphasise breath over depth then we should simply make people do the IB instead.

The IB is not a British qualification.

What Sunak is proposing is basically a British IB.

Feels like students should just be put on the already existing IB then but it will be interesting to see how the ABS differs to the French Bac/IB.
