Russell Group scraps chosen A-levels list after arts topics hit

Arts education organisations have actually invited a choice by the Russell Group of research-led universities to ditch its questionable list of chosen A-levels, after long-running criticism that it has actually added to a decline of arts topics.

The group’s list of so-called “facilitating subjects“, consisting of mathematics, English, sciences, languages, history and location, was initially prepared to assist students pick A-levels that would open doors to more degrees at the most selective universities.

Critics declare it has actually led to a constricting of the school curriculum, ejecting arts and innovative topics in favour of the more conventional, scholastic topics consisted of on the list. Subjects like art and music have actually been amongst the hardest struck.
