The headline from the telegraph is great.

I think the idea was always to ultimately just drop January exams.
And probably to drop resits if at all possible.
Not according to the letters between Gove and Stacey.
Except that Gove wants Universities to become more involved with A levels and these organisations aren't the best at change.
In 2011 the Government proposed that University applications were made AFTER results. The Russell Group came out strongly against this change for 2016.
Maybe there are ideas being tossed around to change UCAS admissions if the Universities have more power? Or could it be that the Universities actually find AS level examination results useful?
