CfEY’s Head of Policy, Baz Ramaiah, joined Mike Graham on TalkTV to discuss this fall and its implications for pupils’ progression to university and other destinations. He also joined Sky News to discuss fairness and the examination system overall with Dr Amelia Roberts of UCL’s Institute of Education.
