Edexcel A Level Maths Paper 3 Leak Solution: Void Paper 3 entirely
As a response to Edexcel’s statement, published on 18th June 2019, I propose that there can be only one fair solution to the A level maths paper 3 leak if resitting is not an option: paper 3 is voided in its entirety. To quote Edexcel, “blacked out images of two exam questions from our A level Maths Paper 3 on Statistics and Mechanics appeared on social media before the exam on Friday 14 June had begun.” The fact of the matter is that the whole paper was up for sale for £70, and more than those two questions were circulated. The BBC published an article on 15th June 2019 that included images of more than the two questions that Edexcel refer to. There is no way to accurately determine who saw what parts of the paper due to the nature of social media. The possibility of removing two questions is completely inadequate. This isn’t about grade boundaries. This is about equality and fairness. By voiding the paper, there is complete fairness to all those who sat the paper. No one is disadvantaged or advantaged in any way. Removing two questions hurts those individuals that may have fairly gained marks in those questions and consequently lost out on marks elsewhere in the paper. The paper and the circumstances around it are now contaminated, and so validating anything from the paper is flawed. A truly ‘level playing field,’ even with various adjustments to how the paper is marked, can never be achieved, because there are too many variables at play. Sign this petition if you truly believe in fairness and justice. This exam affects lives and could be the factor that alters people’s futures. Thank you. https://qualifications.pearson.com/content/demo/en/about-us/news-and-media.news.html?article=/content/demo/en/news-policy/press-releases/2019/a-level-maths-letter-to-parents-students https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-48646682
Cgp to create a biology A level specification B revision guide for edexcel
Hi, I am an A level student who does biology A Level specification B. It is a very complex course and cgp revision guides are a great tool to help understand all the concepts. They have created a book for all specifications except this one. I find this very unfair for all the students who do this specification. The A levels have recently changed and new content has been added. We have to learn a lot and it will be helpful to have a book that has condensed notes inside it to help the students as we hardly have any other resources. Students for all specifications should be entitled to get a book made. So please could you sign this petition to help us students get the guide we need in order to help us because its not only me who does this specification. thank you!
Petition to Edexcel
Get Edexcel to make another C4 test and get a retake this year or lowering of boundaries.
This year the A level maths Exam core 4 (C4) got leaked (the picture), same happened last year with no consequences, with a lot of people getting the paper before the exam and were able to obtain answers. Putting the rest of us at a disadvantage. Edexcel have released a statement from which one can infer that little to no action will be taken, and the only result I see is that the grade boundaries will go way higher and make it harder to obtain good results. After getting messages from friends and online I have decided to add an option of lowering the grade boundaries, not the usual 1 or 2 mark reduction but a massive reduction such as 15-19 marks as this would help the non cheaters and give a fairer result. To all the signers and supporters please share the this petition around to make sure Edexcel notices and acts appropriately
