Labour says English Baccalaureate Certificate 'out of date'

The GCSE exam in England is going to be replaced by a qualification called the English Baccalaureate Certificate.

A shake-up of the exam system, unveiled by Education Secretary Michael Gove, will mean a single end-of-course exam and one exam board for each subject.

Labour's shadow education secretary, Stephen Twigg, attacked the plans as "totally out of date and out of touch".
