Details

In 2010 Ofqual started a programme to look at the demand of assessments and qualifications internationally.

We compared pre-university qualifications available to students in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, against those available in other parts of the world. We took a look at the teaching of maths, chemistry, English and history in the different systems in each country.

This collection of research presents those findings and related research.
