Pam Tatlow, chief executive of million+, a university think tank, said: "A-level courses and qualifications must be fit for purpose for employers as well as all universities.
"This is a much more complex task than simply getting a few academics together, especially when you bear in mind the huge range of subjects and courses.
"At a meeting with representatives from across higher education, ministers were advised very clearly that universities did not consider that the A-level system was 'broken'.
She added that education ministers "appear to have ignored this advice".
