Ofqual have released a statement announcing that it will take action to ensure standards are set appropriately in A level French, German and Spanish. The announcement stems from new research, which suggests that "awarding should take into account the fact that native language speakers take these subjects."
The press relase, which can be viewed in full by following the link below, says, "The adjustment to grade standards will be decided in early summer. If the ability of the cohorts is similar to previous years we would anticipate small increases in the proportion of students getting top grades in each subject this August."
Ofqual have also released findings of their MFL conditions and guidance consultation which can be found here.
