Education CommitteeFurther written evidence submitted by Nick Gibb MP, Department for Education (Annex A)

In the Select Committee evidence session on 21 March I responded to Q652 from Damian Hinds that I thought a move to an alternative model of delivering exams would require primary legislation.

As I set out in my evidence, we are actively considering a number of options. We are of the opinion that some of those options would not require primary legislation. We will continue to work through the advantages and disadvantages of all the options, and look forward to receiving the Select Committee’s report.
