Michael Gove proposes split in exams systems

Michael Gove, the secretary of state for education, has said it is time for England, Wales and Northern Ireland to go their separate ways on GCSEs and A-levels.

Mr Gove has taken a hard-line approach in his campaign to toughen up exams. In his letter, to both the NI and Welsh education ministers, he described the proposed move as "a natural and legitimate consequence of devolution".

Northern Ireland's Education Minister John O'Dowd has said he is not opposed to revamping the exams, but would not be rushed into action.

Last year, the Sinn Fein minister and his Welsh counterpart expressed their displeasure after Mr Gove made an announcement about A-level changes in England without consulting either of them.
