HC Deb 08 November 1999 vol 337 c438W
Mr. Boswell

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment what studies he has undertaken into the relative values of grades awarded at GCE A Level. [97490]

Mr. Wicks

No specific studies of the relative value of GCE A level grades have been carried out either by the Department or the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority. However, QCA regularly monitors A levels to ensure consistency in grading standards across different syllabuses, subjects and awarding bodies, and over time, as part of its normal evaluation programme.
