Ofqual seeks views on music and drama performance changes

Ofqual has launched a consultation on changes to its rules about the length of performances in music and dance GCSEs, AS and A levels.

It proposes to change its rules on how performances are marked if a student performs for less than the expected time. Ofqual is also clarifying its rules about how music performances that are not based on a traditional written score are assessed and its expectations for the number of dances a learner must perform.

The consultation is open for 4 weeks, and the final date for responses is 9 December 2018.
