Changes to the GCSE exam system could prove "detrimental" to children who struggle to perform under pressure, according to one headteacher.
Speaking to ITV News, Andrew Keeley said he believes one off exams are poor for students, and that a modular system combined with coursework enables students with different abilities to succeed.
The Headteacher of St Chad's school said the plan to change the grading system to numbers could cause a significant period of confusion, which may be damaging to students and employers.
