Kelly expected to reject radical exam reforms

Education Secretary Ruth Kelly is expected to reject plans for radical reform of school exams today and risk clashing with almost every leading figure in the education world.
Ms Kelly will attempt to win over critics with a promise to end the 'snobbery' that has cast work-related courses as inferior to academic study for decades.

But she is set to dismiss widely supported plans drawn up by former chief inspector of schools Sir Mike Tomlinson to replace A-Levels and GCSEs with a new overarching diploma.
