Petition Action

Lower grade boundaries of 2021 GCSE and A-Level students.

Petition Details

The Government should lower grade boundaries according to the national average. This could be done by taking the highest total raw mark of a subject, making that the new 100%/A*/9.

Additional Information

I would like the government to take into account the hardships that GCSE and A-Level students have had to face this year due to the Coronavirus. Students sitting exams this year will have missed up to 6 months of education due to the lockdown. Out of a two year course this will be detrimental. Many students have been without any online lessons at all. This lack of tuition will drastically drag down a students grade.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
