GCSE consultations 2014

The consultations are now closed, but what were they all about?

We were not happy with proposed changes to GCSE subject content and assessment.

So, in November 2014, we encouraged you to respond to two consultations: one on subject content (from the Department for Education), the other on assessment (from Ofqual, the exam regulator).

To make life easier for you, we prepared example responses for both and forms that sent your responses directly to the DfE and Ofqual consultation teams.

And you took full advantage of them. 59 people responded to the DfE and 48 to Ofqual, using our forms.
