    I can understand that many teachers did not like the controlled assessment science practicals. What I can’t understand is why not count the marks of the new style exams in the overall grade?

  2. It would be interesting to poll just science teachers and get their view of the various attempts to do practical assessments of the whole GCSE cohort.
