    Hello,

    18 months into my one of my A2 courses my school has now informed me that they will not be entering me into the exam. This is as they believe that i am on course to obtain below my predicted grade of an A, despite having achieved this at AS level. The schools management team claim that this is to help me focus on my other subjects, however, the action they have taken mean i will be unable to fulfil any of my university offers as they are all 3 grades, and i am now only taking two subjects. I believe the motive behind the schools actions are to try and artificially elevate exam results statistics and are willing to sacrifice the future of the students to do this.

    My question is are the school allowed to do this and do you believe it to be unjust?

    This isn't fair. I'd get a parent involved as they have jeopardised your chance at university.

    Can they? Yes, though unless your school believe you are slacking and need a massive kick in the rear, I cannot understand why any school would make such a decision.
    Should they? Because you won't get an A grade? Is that the real reason? If you were doing 4 and they wanted to limit you to 3 I'd say ok. But limiting you to two leaves you in a position to not meet the entry requirements of most university courses. It isn't reasonable or sensible. You and your parents should meet with the school and sort it out.
