GCSEs Go Back To Stone Age...

Maths GCSE coursework is dropped

So the final nail is in the coffin, we're not going to assess what maths is about anymore, just sums. OK, internet plagiarism is a major issue, but abolishing coursework's not the answer.

A lot of what maths is about, are the investigative processes which were traditionally assessed in the coursework. The exams centre around the application of methods, most of which we do not use in day to day life. It's the investigation and application sides that are important throughout all aspects of life. It makes sense to remove the main way of assessing these?

Why are we giving up because of a small hurdle?

Does this means degree courses will start phasing out thesis too soon?
