The exam result revolt

the latest decisions by education ministers reveal that pupils can use their Mock GCSE or A-level results if algorithms’ used to determine grades seriously lower their achievements.

We are in such a predicament. The school has been closed because of bad results – among other reasons. Yet my child’s results have always been above average. Went to a low-achieving Primary and the year of his SATs the school’s standing in the league tables rose.

Unfortunately for us, now in the school, which is also closing this year, the school has refused to supply a printed copy of the second Mock GCSE results.

The first Mock GCSE results already provide a pass for Sixth form entry but the second lot was even better. I do not understand why a school would refuse to give a printed copy of those mock exam results to pupils.

I have now contacted the head of education in the borough, Christine McInnes and the head of the closing school and the Executive head of the school who works in another school.

It is stressful to say the least.
