Exams for arts subjects get harder

April 9, 2014 8:43 am

Education Secretary Michael Gove has announced that A-levels and GCSEs in arts subjects in England, such as history and geography, are to be made more “rigorous and demanding.”

They will be taught from September 2016, alongside changes to A-levels in RE and design and technology. The announcements will set out the next stages of the government’s programme of exam reform, with changes being phased in over the next few years.

Arts subjects are the latest to be revised, with new GCSEs in art and design, music, drama and new A-levels in music, drama and dance. Exam boards and experts will help to devise the content.
