Cambridge To Help Develop New Maths A-Level
Education secretary Michael Gove has just announced that Cambridge University are to be given nearly £3m in government funding to help develop a new A Level maths course, in a project that is set to lay out new guidelines and make the course more rigorous. This will come hot on the heels of recent changes to the GCSE curriculum which will affect students who have gone into year 10 this autumn, and it follows up on recent discussion about changing the modular nature of A Level courses. However, this decision is not without its critics, with some saying the decision puts too much control in the hands of specific universities, essentially allowing them to own the qualification.
