We are asking Gavin Williamson and the rest of government to cancel the January 2021 exams as it is unfair to cancel the exams for students taking exams in the summer and not for students taking them in January. Changes to exams and education should apply to all students to avoid inequalities and discrimination. It is simply outrageous to expect students to attend colleges during a global pandemic and national lockdown to sit an exam at the risk of contracting the virus and not only becoming unwell themselves but also infecting their loved ones and members of the wider society. Expecting January exams to go ahead as planned is unrealistic and does not reflect the current situation the country is in. Please don’t forget about students taking Btec exams and other alternatives to A levels.
