Rejected petition Remove welshbacc from the compulsory curriculum.
'Welshbacc' has no importance to young people,
The course studies outdated topics,
It should not be compulsory.
You could study an extra A-Level that is regarded by every university throughout the world but instead we are made to study 'welshbacc' which is regarded within the UK for underachievers ONLY.
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 about removing the compulsory element of the Welsh Baccalaureate is already collecting signatures: https://petitions.senedd.wales/petitions/200118
You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
