Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the whole of the UK and most of the world went into lockdown. This meant that children, and young adults could not go to school, and could not receive the full value and expectations of their education.

Lessons were online and requiring a laptop or computer / internet-based system to complete. This meant that those without good, or any internet at all had less quality of education - therefore missing out on valuable and critical information relevant to their exams and lessons.

Not only this, but working-class pupils, especially pupils in large families would not have had the quiet space such as a library, or school study room to study, complete homework or even just participate in the lessons provided by the school.

Lessons such as, English Literature, for example, require teacher-taught skills to interpret exam questions and pieces of work, which some pupils would not have had access to due to lack of resources or space at home.

Not only this, but children and young adults who experience domestic violence at home, which comes with any class status, age, gender and ethnicity, would not have had a quiet or safe space at school, resulting in them paying more attention to what is going on at home than their school work.

It would be unquestionably unfair and discriminating to the pupils who go through any of the above experiences to keep the level of content in A Level and GCSE 2021 exams the same. 

If content is to be kept the same, students in families with traumatic backgrounds, or even just students who struggle academically, will fail purely because of their lack of knowledge, memory and positive experiences at home - each school took a different approach to this pandemic, however education at home is not one-size-fits-all.
