Mansoora Khan started this petition to The British Council and

 A levels and GCSEs are cancelled in the UK. Previously their schools were open and ours were closed. Now schools there are closed and here they have reopened. Pupils in both nations got the same time for syllabus coverage then why aren't we assessed in the same way as they are?? The best way to ensure fairness for everyone across the world is to simply scrap A levels and GCSEs worldwide i.e cancelling Cambridge International Examinations in 2021 too.

 

The corona positive cases here in Pakistan are apparently low but believe me the real number is 5 to 6 times higher than shown. I don't mean to say that the data is fabricated in any way but the truth is that the testing rate and quantity are very low. There are many who are asymptomatic and many who cannot even afford a test if they have symptoms. Hence the reported number is not the actual picture. In such cold weather the cases should have risen. Yet the data we have doesn't support that. As I said, the thing is people do not bother getting tested or are financially incapable of doing so. 

 

Thus, I urge the government and British council to reconsider their decision. We have had many rallies and Jalsas across the country and I can guarantee that the spread is actually on its peak at this time. Plus,as stated in the beginning, when schools in England were open schools in Pakistan were closed. Now its the opposite. Pupils in both countries got the same time to revise. In a way, English pupils are still ahead as they have far greater Internet and technological supplies than we do in Pakistan and there is no denial in that. Hence, it is entirely and completely unfair to assess both countries' pupils differently. The entire world suffered in a very similar way and so to maintain equality and do justice to all, everyone must be rewarded grades in the same way. If exams are scrapped in England, then scrap them in Pakistan and the whole world too.

It would be of immense relief and support if we have clarity on this issue as soon as possible. I hope quick decisions will be made for the fairest approach in giving grades to pupils worldwide.
