For all those looking for more freedom when teaching GCSE English...

  1. Until they count towards the 5 A*-C in the performance tables and until the DfE approves inclusion into the EBacc, then this qualification - however interesting - is no good to us.
    Shame because I really really like the fact there's no CA!

  2. The DfE have stated that "accredited iGCSEs at grades A* - C will count towards the English Baccalaureate" so we don't expect there to be any problems gaining approval now that it's been accredited. It's likely to be just a question of time.
  3. We can confirm that the DfE has now approved the AQA
    Level 1/2 Certificate in English Language for funding, which will be administered in the same way as
    funding for accredited GCSEs.
    Now that funding is confirmed, the points for A*- C grades and inclusion on the league tables will follow,
    and will be the same as they are for a GCSE.
    We hope to make a similar announcement for the AQA
    Level 1/2 Certificate in English Literature shortly.
