GCSE shake-up: 'Smaller changes' needed

The government's plan to scrap GCSEs in key subjects in England has been strongly criticised by MPs.

The Education Select Committee also voiced concerns about the timetable for change, saying changing "too much, too fast" could threaten exam quality.

Teachers have also voiced concerns about the plans to replace GCSEs with English Baccalaureate certificates.

Speaking to the BBC, Russell Hobby from the National Association of Head Teachers suggested smaller changes were needed to address problems in the exams system, which were exacerbated by league tables.
