Rejected petition Allow the teacher-assessed grades of Year 12 students to contribute to their final A level results

Welsh students in Year 12 usually receive grades at the end of the school year which contribute to their final A level grade. Differently, this year students sitting their AS levels have done tests, revised and worked extremely hard throughout the year for nothing. All the content forced down Year 12’s throats is now obsolete, and it accounts for nothing. We believe that it is only fair that all the hard work that we have put in should have a role to play in our A level results.

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 this is already collecting signatures:

Ensure that centre assessment grades contribute towards final GCSE and A Level grades

You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
