Late last night the whole “level 5 is a C”, ”oh no its not” thing started. I find the way the media can get everyone so outraged is amazing – we read it in the paper or hear it on the news and it MUST be fact. Now if you’re like me (and bless your little cotton socks if you are!) you’ll take everything you read with a pinch of salt and the first thing you’ll do is try to hunt out the source of the news … I want to, as they say, hear it (in this case read it) from the horses mouth, so the reality is Ofqual announced “We are starting a conversation on how standards should be set for new GCSE’s” and you can read the original press release here.
