I support reform of the assessment and qualification system across 14-19 education but the latest Government proposals risk turning the clock back.

The announcement last week on changes to A-levels in England – including scrapping the AS Level – risk narrowing the options for young people, returning to an all or nothing set of exams at the end of the course. It's no wonder leading universities like Oxford and Cambridge say this is a mistake.
