The Education Secretary has announced plans to overhaul GCSEs and A-levels in England.
The reforms will see new GCSEs in academic subjects including English and maths introduced in 2015, as well as revamped A-levels in a number of subjects.
Michael Gove's proposals represent the most radical overhaul of examinations for 16-year-olds for a generation.
Last year, Mr Gove announced plans to replace GCSEs with English Baccalaureate Certificates, with each subject to be set by a single exam board.
However, this was later scrapped with Mr Gove conceding at the time "one of the proposals I put forward was a bridge too far".
