Consultation description

Following the first delivery of the reformed GCSEs, AS and A levels in music in summer 2018, we identified two issues with our rules for the performance assessment in these qualifications. One of these issues also applies to the reformed GCSE, AS and A level in dance. We have also identified an editorial error specifically related to the reformed GCSE in dance. To address these issues, we are proposing to make some small changes to our subject-level conditions.
