Join Richard Vaughan as he discusses Ofqual's recent decision to consult on removing practical assessments from overall GCSE grades.
He travelled to the Association of Science Education's annual conference to get the views of Dr Hilary Leevers of the Wellcome Trust and ASE president and Reading University vice-chancellor Sir David Bell.
He also caught up with physics teacher and author Alom Shaha to hear his thoughts on the matter, and he heard from Janet Holloway, association director standards for design, development and evaluation of general qualifications at Ofqual, to learn the reason behind the controversial decision.
