This interactive graphic shows when qualifications reforms will take effect. The tool covers GCSEs and A levels, and secondary school and college performance tables. Use the red and green buttons to explore and click the bubbles for more information about each item in the timeline. As they are introduced, only the new reformed GCSEs will be included in key stage 4 performance tables and measures. Pupils may sit unreformed qualifications early but those results will not count in the key stage 4 performance tables. A summary of the main features of each of the reformed GCSEs can be found here.
