Is this the end for Engineering GCSEs?

  • by

Latest data from Ofqual shows a 37% decline in the number of entries for GCSE engineering in England over the past year – the number falling to just 2,990 entries for this summer (provisional figures). There has been a steady and fairly pronounced drop each year since 2015 and if this continues on trend then 2020 looks to be the end of the line for this ‘vocationally orientated’ qualification.
