P-04-679 Remove the Welsh Baccalaureate Qualification

Textof the Petition

At a time when young people are told that they must excel in core curriculum subjects such as English, Maths and Science the Welsh Baccalaureate takes up time that can be used to concentrate on these areas. The Welsh Baccalaureate is a pointless qualification that serves no real purpose to a student's future.  The Welsh Baccalaureate qualification could easily be removed or replaced by a citizenship course. The removal of Welsh Baccalaureate could also help improve grades as it would allow students to focus on real GCSE's and A Levels and will relieve students of added pressure.
