Overhaul of GCSE Results…at last someone sees sense!

Came across this story late last week on the BBC site…

Overhaul of GCSE results could mean fewer grades…. GCSE results could be overhauled with a cut in the number of grades available suggests the exams regulator for England, Ofqual.

Here’s my views….

At last somebody sees sense! Lets revert to a system that everybody understands. Grades A,B,C,D,E & U, with C and above being seen as a pass. The outcome is then clear. Does anybody really care about the differentiation between F & G? GCSEs should be hard, thus removing the nonsense of A* which is simply an admission of dumbing down.
