I chose to resit due to extenuating circumstances where my father was on his death bed during my 2019 A Level sitting. Evidently, this had a great emotional toll on me that -
reflected in my grades and I knew I had to resit as I was determined to obtain grades that reflect my potential and ability. In addition to this, my desire to resit also stemmed from wanting to leave generational poverty and social inequality that has been inflicted upon me.
Unfortunately, being a young BAME person from a low income family in one of the poorest boroughs in the U.K., on free school meals and occasionally provided with £60-£90 in bursary per school term (£20-£30 per month) has not given me leverage in life.

Notizie che non arriveranno in Italia (o verranno spiegate a cazzo). Ieri gli studenti han ricevuto gli risultati degli A-levels (equivalente della maturità). Ed è stato un ulteriore colpo alla working class. (thread) #alevels

Gli A-Levels sono fondamentali per l'ammissione all'università. Più prestigiosa l'università, più alti sono i risultati richiesti (i voti sono espressi in lettere dalla A alla E, più U, Unclassified). Con determinati risultati non si viene ammessi da nessuna parte.
Oltre ai docenti, vengono impiegati commissari esterni che appartengono agli organismi che stabiliscono i criteri di valutazione su base nazionale e moderano i voti. Questo, in teoria, dovrebbe garantire imparzialità e fair treatment.

UCU general secretary @DrJoGrady will be on @bbc5live from 5.10pm talking about the #AlevelResults fiasco.

Listen live here:
bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/li…
She says the government doesn't know what it's doing and bringing in mock results adds another layer of confusion and most harms already disadvantaged students. It needs to move to a system of predicted grades as the basis for A level results instead. #alevels #AlevelResults
She highlights how the lack of proper planning from the government is creating much more work for university staff. #alevels #AlevelResults

Speaking to @SkyNews, @DrJoGrady says the chaotic of the late change means full details are only now starting to filter through. Reports now say that pupils will have to appeal if they want to use a mock result #alevels #AlevelsResults
Highlighting how disadvantaged students have been worse hit by the pandemic, she says that of course any situation was going to be imperfect. But now the Westminster government needs to follow Scotland's belated lead and put students first. #alevels #AlevelsResults
She says the government making policy up on the hoof at this late stage is going to be a nightmare for university staff and their plans are already now up in the air. #alevels #AlevelsResults

UCU general secretary @DrJoGrady is on @BBCNews talking about the exam results shambles. You can watch live via bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/b… #alevels #AlevelResults
She says the eleventh hour move from the government to allow some students to pick their mock results is a farce causing more confusion.
She says that looking forward we need to consider shifting to a better system where students apply to university after they receive their results.

(THREAD) So, let's talk: mental health of Y13s, because this week, everybody remembers we exist!
1. We 'left' school in March. No/little contact with school after, no work, no purpose.
2. Exams cancelled. Nobody knew anything for 2 days.
#AlevelResults #alevels2020 #alevels
3. 5 months of waiting for results. Blamed by Y12s for 'taking up uni places'. 5 months of listless boredom, time with our thoughts.
4. SQA Results come out- everyone panics.
5. Students can take their mock grades. We were told. At 22.30. On the 11th.
The mock grades are unfair for multiple reasons (who does better in mocks?), but also the fact people cheat, people see the question papers, leaving lots of students feeling stupid.
6. Results Day? Haha you think you can see teachers? Noooo, not quite...
