NUS RESPONDS TO OFQUAL A LEVEL ANNOUNCEMENT
The National Union of Students (NUS) has today (Friday) responded to an announcement from exam regulator Ofqual on A Level reform.
Toni Pearce, NUS Vice President (Further Education) said:
“These announcements from Ofqual represent a return to a 1950s draconian style education system where your entire future is based on your performance on one day, with no second chances or room for an off day.”
“We need an education system which values learning, not merely an accreditation system that certifies people once a year.”
