About A-level Reforms

  • 0 votes

Today was the first that I have heard about these A level reforms - these changes meant to be taking place from September 2013 in all English schools and colleges- that state that January exams are to be scrapped and resits limited. 

I suppose I was just wondering what other student's views on this are, I am particularly interested because it ties in with my sociology.

yh wen i was visiting my colleges, the open days few weeks ago they were telling me about this a-level resit abolish.. this obv will affect me.. which is really annoyin coz the point of doin it early is to get some stress n pressure out the way.. how do u honestly expect us to remember a whole year of learning for four subjects at a-level n do well at the same time ?? its like a-levels are hard as it is.. the government thinks education is too easy.. but by making it mission impossible they are not going anywhere.. they should sit the exams n see hows it like..

I agree with you both. Although the Government and the education board state that A levels are too easy nowadays they are ignoring the fact that universities and jobs are even more competitive than they were in the past and are even more difficult to get into. Now they have just made that even more difficult! 

I cannot understand how they can see this being beneficial to anyone.

well said ♥ Secret ♥! the government are in the dark on how hard exams especially a levels are. i want to know how they expect us to remember loads of content for 4 subjects and possibly even more exams (i'll have 5 exams in june) and still expect us to do well, we are not superhuman and this is just too much pressure on us and too many changes, all these changes have gone too far.

thanks.. its like it really annoys me wen i hear all these sudden changes in education system, its too sudden and its annnoying that we don't get a say in it at all :/ its like you just putting people off more by making it harder and like u guys said.. the world is getting more competitive so how do u expect us to do well..

on the other hand..im relieved that i do alot of extra curricular stuff, coz unis like it as well as ur grades :)

it seems to me that these changes are made without any chance for people to give their opinions about it.
