DfE kicks-off consultation on core subjects

The Department for Education this morning began a two-month consultation on the content of the core subjects for reformed GCSEs.

English language, English literature, mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics, double combined science, geography and history will be introduced for schools to teach from September 2015. GCSEs in ancient and modern languages, also being consulted on today, will follow a year later.

Summaries of the proposed content for the English language and literature and history exams are below and the other subjects will follow shortly (please leave your thoughts underneath if you want to):
