Gove: 'Inherent problems' with GCSEs

Speaking on the Today programme the education secretary said that there were "inherent problems with the assessment in modular exams".

He believes there should be a move away from modular examinations towards examinations that have a "deep understanding of the subjects".

He told John Humphrys he wants to replace GCSEs with an examination "that has all the rigour of the old O Level but which is sat by a majority of students".
