The new ‘A’ levels are due to be launched in 2010.
It would be a great idea to put the supplementary material to the examination textbooks on the Internet. This would overcome the problem of having to produce the textbooks before the writer’s have seen what the examination boards have produced. This supplementary material could be used as a marketing tool for the textbooks and more importantly, the textbooks would become more of an educational resource rather than being reduced to what is needed to pass the exam. Take my word for it, it is much easier to update a website than it is a textbook.
