Should we have single exam boards for qualifications?

The Guardian has today posted a story claiming that ministers are floating the prospect of moving to a single exam board system as a result of last year’s OCR results chaos. This entails either having a single body for all subjects, or different exam boards doing specific subjects.

Although the story is not an announcement as such and more a vague suggestion that this could happen, it is an issue which is perpetually coming and going out of the system, and I thought it’d be worth giving some thought.

UPDATE: Schools Week has followed up on this and according to Nick Gibb it is not just ‘hot air’, but a serious proposal.
