The Cambridge Pre-U, literacy, and school uniforms as a great leveller | Letters

Letters from Michael O’Sullivan of Cambridge Assessment International Education, Ursula Hutchinson and Dr Peter Glanvill

As creators of the Cambridge Pre-U, we’d like to correct a point made by Bernie Evans (Letters, 12 July) that “Cambridge Pre-U qualifications are not regulated like other exams by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ)”.

Thus state schools can and do offer Cambridge Pre-U, and make up 38% of all schools taking it.
