Exams 2020: Letter to Deputy First Minister (17th August)

August 2020. Our letter to Deputy First Minister John Swinney MSP highlights:

  • the need for a route of appeal which is directly accessible to young people who disagree with their teacher’s estimate or who have been subject to discrimination,
  • the importance of universities adopting a flexible approach when offering students places, following the UK Commissioners’ letter to Universities UK,
  • the importance of acknowledging the systemic unfairness of downgrading students by moderation of grades through an algorithm.
