So the corona virus has inevitably spread, and I know our exams may be affected as some schools may have to shut for 2 months. What do you think will happen? Would we get predicted grades or would exams be moved to a later date? I know it is unlikely to happen, but definitely not impossible! a teacher at school around a mile from me has a confirmed case lmao

Also, how likely do you think it would be for it to actually affect our exams?

South London! A case was found in Wimbledon, and I get the bus with the pupils from the school the teacher worked at. He didn’t come into contact with any students however- only the teachers and so the school is only shut for a week.

Yeah that’s what’s happening at the moment. It’s only if it becomes a pandemic that it would be two months so hopefully that won’t happen!

But it's not just (or even primarily) for the deep clean - it's to prevent significant concentrations of people for several hours on end in quite confined quarters

I doubt they'd push back the exams as lots of people have plans for the summer and it would dig into those summers, like thousands of pounds fo some holidays. Also A-levels would be staggered. So it would likely be Pre-lim grades. Rumours of +1 to grade as well.

There has been talk that we would get our predicted grades (these are not your mock grades). Considering they might cancel the olympics and it takes 6 months to be completely cleared of the virus it is likely that they will be affected. However people who are unaffected by the virus may come into school, but keep checking the news because latest information will come up there. There are in the process of organizing some contingency days for an emergency.

It will become a pandemic coz this virus spreads asymptomatic and is well easy to get, i reckon they might delay when A levels are sat, the virus apparently remains on surfaces for days, everyone reading this go buy antibacterial gel before they sell out

I don't understand how hey'd postpone exams. If we sat them in august, surely we wouldn't get the results until October? This would affect everyone going to college/ sixth form as they'd be 2 months behind on content, not to mention those who are supposed to be going to uni! Ahhhhh

Well yes I feel it is a realistic assumption, as many people obviously are not going to be satisfied with GCSEs and A-Levels being pushed back. Especially not universities for A-Level students. I'll keep you up to date hopefully

All you should be worried about is that toilet paper has sold out at Tesco so I’ve written a list of alternatives that you can use ranked best to worst but does the job, hope I can help:

1: sandpaper
2: Tree bark
3: finger
4: Train ticket
5: Any 6inch bread from Subway
6: sellotape (double sided can be reused!)
7: cheese grater
8: boiling water
9: phone case
10: glass bottle (preferably broken)
