Abstract

This article focuses on the introduction of Critical Thinking AS level into schools in England. In 2001, 130 schools entered in total just over 2,000 candidates for the whole AS level. By 2009, this had increased to over 1000 schools entering over 22,000 candidates. However, candidate 'success' at Critical Thinking (in terms of proportion of grade As and passes) remained relatively low. This article explores three potential explanations for this.
