The way that the current system will work, high achieving students attending historically under-performing state schools will be put at an immediate disadvantage. For instance, if no one in the centre has ever gotten an A, but you are genuinely an A grade student - and have the evidence to support your claims - your grade will be adjusted to fit the trend for your centre regardless. I.e. you will not get the grade that accurately represents your ability, but the cohort as a whole. This is wrong, and only favours high-performing schools. Obviously results have to remain similar to a school’s history, but there should at least be an appeal system for this specific scenario instead of requiring students to lose their university offers in September and resit their exams.

Can I ask you a question.

For example,
I finished A level unit 1 to 4 in previous series.
I will be taking evidence based grading for unit 5 and 6.

If I don't like my results. Can I resit just for unit 5 and 6?

I am not sure. It would be best to contact your exam board for more information.
