  • As most Year 10 students have recently completed their mock GCSE exams we are obviously exhausted from the constant sessions of revision accompanied by the mental stress from preparation but also subsequently after completing the exams from contemplation of our potential results. Receiving about a month and almost 2 weeks off doesn't seem substantial enough to overcome mental health needs and other appointments requiring a lot of time to attend to. Therefore, I on behalf of probably all the Year 10 students in the UK am requesting possible extra time off (perhaps 3 weeks), in order for us to get our mindsets back in shape and circumvent the consequence of the  forthcoming psychological bombardment of Year 11. Moreover, time is moving rapidly and soon enough we will be occupying our assigned seats panicking in acknowledgement that we are about to take a test that will depict a fraction in the shape of our lives. It's a stressful thought to consume. In the midst lies the COVID-19 pandemic which remains ongoing and potential future lockdowns are still mixed in the possibility. Come one lockdown and a whole batch of essential content or crucial revision time is wasted. 

To conclude, the significance of this petition is for you to enable us, as optimistic and ambitious school students, time to get our heads back in the right frame of mind in order to prosper and surpass the events of the future.
