Reforms to the GCSE exam in England were set out in the Mail on Sunday yesterday, and the Education Secretary Michael Gove and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will flesh them out today.

Sir Mike Tomlinson, former chief inspector of schools, described the reforms as "largely positive" but said that there are some questions that remain to be answered in some detail.

He said the new exam "should be available to a wide range of ability... and not marginalise some group of pupils".
