Today students across the country will receive their A-Level results whilst GCSE results will be released later this week. These students have faced an incredibly difficult time and significant disruption to their education during two important school years because of the pandemic.
I am proud of all of the young people in my constituency who have worked so hard, despite the disruption. Congratulations to everyone who has received the results you hoped for in these difficult circumstances. If you haven’t received the results you hoped for, please understand that these exam results will not be the single thing that defines you, and there will be other opportunities to pursue your goals and plans.
This year the Government replaced the disastrous algorithm used to calculate last year’s results, with a system based on teacher assessment, moderated by exam boards. If you are unhappy with your grades, it is important to speak with your school or college as soon as possible to begin the appeals process.
Good luck to everyone receiving results this week!
