Ofqual chief executive Sally Collier has written to headteachers to advise them to expect “more variation than usual” in this year’s GCSE and A-level results due to a series of reforms introduced by former Education Secretary Michael Gove. The changes were made to toughen up syllabuses, make courses more linear, and reduce the number of students receiving A*s. Teenagers will sit the new GCSEs for the first time this summer in 25 new subjects while there will be 19 new A-levels. It is the third and final instalment of the phased introduction of the new qualifications which began in 2017.
