Education Secretary Michael Gove has confirmed changes to A-levels in England that will mean pupils will take exams at the end of two-year courses.

AS-levels will remain, but as a standalone exam, and leading universities will play a bigger role in maintaining standards.

Appearing before MPs on the Education Select Committee, he explained what he wanted to see.
