New Exam System for Britain
Ben Morse puts up a strong argument against the proposed changes to the exam system. He says that the changes are classist, ill thought-out and not fit for purpose. Whilst I cannot agree with him on many points, I do not see classics as classist, I like his comments on the choice of title, English Baccalaureate. He criticises this French title on the grounds that it is French and already a recognised qualification. He suggests something English instead, English Middle Certificate for example.
