The Administration Of Examinations For 15-19 Year Olds In England

This report by the Education Committee on the administration of examinations for 15-19 year olds in England says that the quality of GCSE and A-levels had been adversely affected by a system which allows competition between exam boards and that boards should be stripped of their right to decide the content of examinations. Instead MPs favour the introduction of national syllabuses. They hope this will prevent boards from lowering the quality of exams in the fight for more market share.
