Details of the new exam that will replace GCSEs in England will be unveiled on Monday, it has emerged. The new single exam qualification will be introduced in 2015 with the first students sitting the tests in 2017. Monday’s announcement comes after disagreements within the coalition over the planned changes were settled. It was originally scheduled for Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Welsh government has said it will not rush into a decision about the future of GCSEs in Wales. Welsh ministers are instead waiting to hear the findings of a review which is due in November.
