Scottish Qualifications Authority to be scrapped after OECD review

The Scottish Qualifications Authority is to be replaced as part of a “substantial” overhaul of education, following an independent review.The government said changes would be made in response to the OECD’s report on the Curriculum for Excellence (CfE). It backed the curriculum as a whole but said there was too much focus on exams in later years of schooling. The exams body is to be broken up and replaced, with pupils, parents and teachers to be consulted on changes.
