How to revive A-level maths
Data which relates the A-level grade to the previous average GCSE scores of the candidate suggests the "most difficult" subjects are maths, physics, chemistry and languages - the very subjects the CBI would like to encourage. I have yet to hear of too many complaints about straight-A students in these subjects.
If the difficulty of all subject exams were raised to the level of the hardest it would solve most of the problems identfied by the CBI.
The proportion of A-grades would drop in other subjects and make it less advantageous for students to study them, so encouraging them to take languages, maths and science.
