Nansi Ellis, head of education policy at the Association of Teachers and Lecturers, said after A-level results were revealed today:
– Nansi Ellis
We are worried about the Government's plans for new look A-levels.
We hope the Government rethinks its plans to return to a system of A-levels that only benefited an elite group of students who did well with an intensive regime culminating in one set of final course exams.
We think the current system, with AS-levels as the first half of an A-level, is better for the vast majority of students.
