2012 GCSE English results

Release Date: 2013-06-11
Genre: Education

The 2012 GCSE English results prompted significant controversy, which ultimately resulted in an application for judicial review. This report sets out the background to these events and identifies lessons to be learned. The problems with GCSE English can be traced back to the 2007-09 development phase of the qualification- in particular the turbulence which resulted from the shift away from a mostly linear to a modular system, combined with a high proportion of controlled assessment and generous marking tolerances. Exam board experts raised concerns at the time, but these were not acted upon by the regulator (the then-interim Ofqual). Further difficulties arose because of pressures from the school accountability system. The problems experienced with GCSE English in 2012 highlighted serious weaknesses in the moderation of speaking and listening, with consequences for grade awarding. The current status of Ofqual, as an independent regulator accountable to Parliament, is the right one. However, the Coalition Government is bringing in wholesale changes to GCSEs and A levels, to a tight timetable and at the same time. Ofqual must have systems in place. The Committee is also concerned that there is a rush towards separate exam systems for England, Wales and Northern Ireland, without careful reflection on what might be lost, or consensus that this is the right thing to do.

Genre: Education

Few Welsh scholars of the modern era have served their profession, university, and country as admirably as Sir Glanmor Williams (1921–2005), and this volume recounts his remarkable contributions to the flourishing of Welsh history during the past half century. Highlighting the political, economic, educational, and social threads in his work—including the launch of the Welsh History Review, the major publication series Studies in Welsh History, the Oxford History of Wales, and the Glamorgan County History, as well as his charming and modest memoir A Lie—this memorial tribute pays honor to an eminent figure in Welsh public life.
