A-level reform: The view from the inside

By Daniel Acquah, Suzanne Chamberlain, Simon Eason, Ben Jones, Debra Malpass, Lesley Meyer, Anne Pinot de Moira, Ian Stockford, Neil Stringer, Christopher Wheadon


The Centre for Education Research and Policy (CERP), has been working within the examination system under various guises since 1975 to ensure that public examinations are reliable and valid. This insider knowledge offers CERP a unique understanding of what is working well and what is working less well in the context of A-levels.

The following series of short papers draws on the experience of the past 35 years to present some answers to pressing questions on A-levels. These papers represent a small part of the work of the Centre for Education Research and Policy, and do not represent AQA’s view on the future of A-levels or an exhaustive list of the features they should possess. Rather, they are an attempt to inject some high quality evidence into the discussions of A-level reform.
