Rejected petition Award A -Level students the grades their teachers have predicted them, the grades they deserve.
This unprecedented year has caused many A level students, including myself, to receive grades drastically lower that we had worked for. All of my grades have been downgraded by either one or two grades, many of my peers are in the same situation. Consequently, we've had to change our university course, resit our exams after months of being away from a learning environment, or appeal our grades.
It is evident that certain schools have been singled out to be downgraded. Teachers have been ignored and the grades they predicted have been discarded. Teachers have taught us throughout the year and know exactly what level we are at and what grades we can achieve, however the exam board doesn't have this information.
We need immediate action to take place and have teachers predicted grades to be taken into a lot more consideration.
