Butchering A levels in Media & Film.

A great post by David Buckingham here.

He explains why we in the Media & Film Department at The Sixth Form Centre have elected to move away from the British A level system and have adopted the International Baccalaureate for Film and Cambridge International A level for Media!

Ironically independent schools in the UK are permitted to run the international A levels, where as states schools are required to switch over to the new English A levels, the legacy of the ideologue Michael Gove. I will be interested to see how many are teaching IB & International A levels next year.
