Report: keep GCSEs in Wales

GCSEs should continue to form a central part of the school qualifications system in Wales, an independent report has recommended. It says a 'high-quality, robust and distinctive national qualifications system' for Wales should be developed, and supports 'divergence' with other parts of the UK.

GCSEs are being replaced by an 'English Baccalaureate' across the border by 2017.
