Petition Cancel GCSE and A level examinations.
Students throughout Wales have suffered enough strain on their education without the added pressure of self-isolation within year groups. Covid should not provide an added stress to pupils worrying about their future exams or university entries. Teachers that have been tracking our progress throughout the year should be held responsible for our end of year grades as they know our mental capacity best. It should not be down to unprecedented examinations.
A student in a local college has had to self-isolate on 4 separate occasions due to members of her class testing positive for Covid. Meaning 2 months have been missed from her education. Yet she at current is still expected to sit examinations for a situation out of her control.
