Rejected petition Fully instate Centre Assessed Grades for GCSE, AS, and A-Levels

The Education Minister has decided to describe the reduction of 42% of A and AS Centre Assessed Grades as "fair".

Awarded qualifications must be determined holistically, and teachers are in a best position to do this, not the exam board or an algorithm.

Students have futures and universities to go to. They cannot be treated as statistics to be made to fit a narrative, or to have their grades reduced without apparent rhyme or reason, or on factors out of their control.

Why was this petition rejected?

There’s already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue, or if the Petitions Committee has considered one in the last year.

Another petition calling for the award of predicted grades for students due to receive examination results in 2020 is already collecting signatures:

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
