The PSA are keen to draw your attention to a current consultation by the exams regulator Ofqual. The consultation is focused on the ‘Conditions and Guidance’ for exam awarding bodies on interpreting the new subject content for the AS and A Level Politics from 2017. Such subject specific guidance is usual following on from a review of content, such as the one recently undertaken on AS and A Level Politics by the Department for Education.
The consultation document can be viewed here.The PSA have given their response and this can be accessed through this link.
As teachers, the proposed guidance on assessment objectives may be of most interest to you. We would encourage you to read the consultation and to respond. The best way to do this would be to complete the consultation document here
