The exam board Pearson has launched a “major” consultation into the future of exams

The first part of the research will be a national six week consultation to get views from students, parents and the sector on how the assessment system can be “fit for the 21st century”. The Covid-19 pandemic and cancellation of exams in 2020 and 2021 have led to a growing debate over the future of assessment, with calls for GCSEs to be scrapped. Teacher assessments are to replace exams this year, with further details of the system due to be set out next week.
