School Exam Reform Conference

Tuesday 28th February 2013 – Central London

University of London


Our School Exams Reform conference is timed to coincide with results from the Key Stage 4 and A-level Reform consultations. This event will give you essential guidance to help prepare your staff and students for the Government’s radical revision of qualifications for secondary education.

  • Are you ready for the new English Baccalaureate Certificate (EBC) in core subjects areas from 2015?
  • Do you understand immediate revisions to GCSEs and how they will fare when the EBC is introduced?
  • Is your organisation equipped for changes to Key Stage 5 examinations?


Designed to keep pace with the best in the world, the new-style exams are expected to be introduced in September 2015, with the first taking place in 2017.  Attend this conference to prepare for the biggest reform of the examination system for school-leavers in a generation.
