Don’t allow the use of externally-set exams for 2021 grades

Petition Details

Students this year are severely underprepared for any form of externally set examination, even if these are sat in informal conditions. Guarantee that only teacher assessed grades will be used in awarding A Level and GCSE grades in 2021.

Additional Information

Following the announcement of the cancellation of this year's examinations in England for A Level and GCSE students, there has been speculation of externally-set 'mini tests' for use in awarding teacher assessed grades at the end of summer.

Students have faced significant disruption to learning and must not be further disadvantaged by the use of examinations in any form, such as the 'mini tests' proposed by Ofqual. These would only further existing inequality.
