Rejected petition Apply teacher predicted grades instead of the proposed assessments to determine GCSE grades.
Due to the third lockdown in Wales, that has adversely impacted learning, particularly for students who experience socioeconomic deprivation and/or additional learning needs. We propose that the Education Department utilise teacher predicted grades, instead of the proposed assessments to determine GCSE grades.
It is suggested, that the new assessment protocol are exams by another name and not fit for purpose.

Another petition calling for this is already collecting signatures:
Cancel external exam style assessments for GCSEs in 2021 and trust our teachers https://petitions.senedd.wales/petitions/244596
