To abolish voluntary hours in Welsh Baccalaureate

This petition had 206 supporters

A lot of students in Wales rely on their Welsh Baccalaureate to get into their desired university. The course requires busy students to do 30+ hours of voluntary work so close to exams. This is a struggle for students who have to juggle work, college and revision, let alone the mentally ill which nearly everything is a struggle and some cannot hold down a job let alone do voluntary work. I think this will bring a rise in stress and other mental issues in students especially the ones already suffering. It will lead to poor work quality and effort and the failings of exams. We wonder why there is a rise in teen suicides but do this to them, which is a burden. It needs to be abolished!!!
