GCSE Turmoil Continues0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:43 pm

GCSEs are something that most of us in the United Kingdom have either taken or are going to take – and they have been a major part of students’ educational careers for the last 20 years. Ever since GCSE’s were introduced to replace the old O-Level exam, nothing much has changed with the exam, but changes have now been announced that will take place over the next few years.

The government have recently voiced concerns with the GCSE style exam, favouring one exam (like the old O-Level exams) rather than a combination of coursework and an examination. This is because they say that the GCSE exams are too easy, and that they do not test the students enough. It is because of this that the government have announced an exam reform which will take place in the next few years.

To add to the GCSE turmoil at the moment, one of the leading exam boards decided to change their grade boundaries just weeks before results were released. This meant that many people did not recieve the grade that they were predicted, and this upset many people. The exam board later announced that government officials pressured them into changing these boundaries. Today a senior member of the exam board announced their resignation because of the incident.

I personally believe that it is unfair to change exam boundaries after exams had been submitted for marking as they would not have been able to prepare for the exam properly. I also think that the government should not pressure exam boards into doing things that they are not comfortable with.

What do you think about the recent GCSE events?
