"A new level"

Authors: Dale Bassett, Thomas Cawston, Laurie Thraves and Elizabeth Truss

Publication date: June 2009

This report calls for an end to the "ersatz A-Levels" which have developed in the past two decades and argues for a return to a more intellectually rigorous examination system. The report recommends that as A-Levels are essentially university entrance examinations it is time that universities are put in charge of deciding the content and marking of A-Levels.
