How Tutoring Can Support Students Facing Teacher-Assessed GCSEs
Since coronavirus spread and lockdown restrictions were put in place, students across the country have been unable to sit their exams for apparent health and safety reasons. The original solution was to blend teachers’ predicted grades with an algorithm, which sparked a backlash from students and school and college leaders due to ‘unfair’ results. (We explain more into the GCSE grading system here). Following the huge uproar, the government did a U-turn and awarded students their results based on teachers’ predictions rather than the algorithm. Students will receive grades determined by teachers during this exam season, and coursework will be in its place for fairness. As this is the case, all exams have now been cancelled for the second time in two years. Although your child is not taking any GCSE exams to finish high school, it is still vital they produce the highest level of work they can. Teachers are, of course, basing their grades on their coursework, so taking advantage of tutoring will ensure that they finish the year strongly.
