Here's a statement from Pearson on the change to the GCSE and A level reform timetable.
Pearson welcomes this sensible amendment to the timetable of GCSE reforms.
It is right that any reforms of this scale are implemented as smoothly as possible in the best interests of students.
We will now work with the regulator and the government to ensure that we develop world class qualifications which enable British students to compete globally.
