Rejected petition Award all A-Level students in Wales their predicted grades (Summer 2020)

A-Level grades this year have been heavily and unfairly influenced by last year’s AS results, and the grades predicted by teachers have been under valued. This is unfair. It penalises students whose attainment last year was unrepresentative of their ability. It also takes no account of any planned AS re-sits which were also cancelled. For example, schools were not asked to provide predicted grades for these specific exams, so students were denied the opportunity to improve their AS grades.

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.
