GCSEs major revamp plea


THE GCSE exams system should be “fundamenta­lly” changed, a report argues.

It says testing should not be based around an “arbitrary” fixed age of 16.

The Independen­t Assessment Commission adds pupils should have chances to “demonstrat­e achievemen­ts when ready”, from age 14 to 19.

The review took place amid huge assessment changes during lockdown when exams were axed.

It added the system had deep-rooted “inequaliti­es”.
