“GCSEs are a product of a different era. It would therefore make a great deal of sense to replace them with some sort of light-touch assessment to determine post-16 routes rather than persisting with high-stakes GCSEs”: my comments for ⁦@ASCL_UKhttps://t.co/gl27Iojm8W

In the UK 2016, there were 4,287 male suicides—76% of the total. 62,000 fewer boys go to university every year than girls. By 16, girls are over 20% more likely to achieve five GCSEs. The two most powerful people are women: the Queen & the PM. This is why I reject #feminism

Anyone wanting to scrap GCSEs in favour of exams at 18 needs to explain how they would performance-manage the many thousands of 11-16 secondary schools. That is all.

A lot of sympathy with @halfon4harlowMP suggesting abolishing GCSEs and reforming A levels https://t.co/CHhZp5BKvc As I wrote here https://t.co/en4t2RquLF GCSEs are an anachronism (few other countries have similar) and lack of decent vocational routes post 16 is a scandal

Lots of chatter about this. I think the GCSE brand is a good one. Previous attempts to find an umbrella qualification as an alternative haven't really worked in UK. But plenty of scope to build GCSEs around a baccalaureate-style curriculum (not the EBacc). https://t.co/hrrBG7BlOq
