I wish to ask the Government to put a stop to this years GCSE’s exams. Myself as a parent of a current year 11 pupil cannot see how they can be expected to sit them. The students mental health is being affected due to the extreme pressure they are under. Not only from the missed term the last school year but from several weeks of forced isolation due to fellow students testing positive for covid. My son already has had a month of online classes due to this he is trying his best to catch up but it is a little like mission impossible with added time out of the class room. The government has mental health at the fore front of its decisions when it comes to covid but the uncertainty and pressure the 15 and 16 year olds are facing is now having a detrimental affect on them. The government need to act now and cancel GCSE’s exams for this year to help the youth of today gain control of their lives. Last year school leavers had predicted grades and they had nowhere near as much missed lessons and pressure than this
