The value of GCSEs to be abolished

Apparently having learnt nothing at all from the modular A level fiasco the educational establishment is going for modular GCSE which you will retake modules of until you pass.

Hence all with have prizes and GCSE's will become worthless, much as A levels have started to do.

This suits the educational establishment which hates objective measures of its performance and would rather carry out its mission to create socialism by using its own judgement for which pupils should be allowed to go forward in life. It will be so much easier for them to carry out their vindictive class war against the middle classes with all objective evidence removed.

It suits the educational establishment because it means the students will end up with higher scores, pushing the pass rates higher and making the government look like they are doing a good job.

They call it 'success', I call it 'manipulation'.

That's what we need: A worthless qualification that no one in the wider world understands (and another year at university to compensate for the shortfall in secondary education that English A-levels avoid).

Here's to the glory of The Greater Scotch Mcreich, the shortest lived empire in history.
