Ofqual wanted to scrap last year’s A-levels, says former chair

The Guardian says England’s exam regulator wanted to scrap last year’s A-levels but backed down rather than risk a “foolish” confrontation with the government, leading to the disastrous use of an algorithm to award grades, the regulator’s former chair has revealed.

Breaking his silence for the first time since resigning as chair of Ofqual, Roger Taylor said the regulator wanted to issue “non-qualification” leaving certificates in place of A-levels last summer, when it became clear that socially distanced exams could not be safely taken.
