Inspired by a tweet by @philallman1, I wonder how many of us have the required GCSEs (or equivalents) to achieve the golden English Baccalaureate. Do you have GCSEs in: *English - must be language not literature *Mathematics *A Science *History or Geography (note not RE) *A modern or ancient European language I would fail because my school offered a combined humanities GCSE. Apparently this makes me less academic than a friend who scraped a C in Geography the following year despite every one of my GCSE grades being higher than hers and my going on to complete A-levels and a degree. It's a wonder I achieved anything with my poor qualifications! Would you get the Ebaccalaureate?
