Petition Look at using Teacher Assessed Grades for learners unable to sit November GCSE exams as a result of a positive COVID test. Ensure fairer arrangements are in place for the May exams.
My son in Year 11 had fully prepared to sit his GCSE Numeracy exams on 2nd and 4th of November. On October 31st he did a Lateral flow test as advised by the Welsh Government. This was positive, followed by a positive PCR test. This meant he could not sit his exams despite being fully prepared by the school for them at this time. He should not be - and neither should others who have Covid - be disadvantaged by the pandemic. They have had to work so hard to get to this point.
E-mails from exam board and Welsh Government not being supportive at all.
