Due to Covid cases rising about 43% increase from August 27 to now at least that's I what I've heard today.

I'm really worried about Autumn A-level exams now being cancelled as their may be a second spike . Does anyone know??

Do you think it's likely that exams will be cancelled??

I'm an individual applicant, luckily I was able to get into Uni from my previous alevel grades which were far from great . but now I am aiming to transfer to a good uni as I couldn't take exams this year.
Any help appreciated 😊

Hi,

I myself am in a similar situation, however I am sitting these through my school. They have emailed out an exam sheet where all the exams have been dated, so its extremely unlikely for the government to cancel Autumn exams. Not only would this be a big hassle, but it would lead to protests and riots from masses of aggravated students. Also, they cannot discriminate against those who are in your situation (sitting privately) and not bat an eye to students sitting through their schools.

So to answer your question, I'd be seriously surprised if they decide to make any adjustments to current plans.

P.S. what A-levels are you doing and how are you finding revision?

Nope, but nobody knows what will happen. I think it unlikely as they can do socially distanced exams. Focus on revision.

The biggest reason as to why they cancelled exams before is because students were sent home and they were unable to learn efficiently at a crucial point in the year.
But seeing as you're resitting, you won't be missing any classes if lockdown restarts, and therefore it's likely that your exams will carry on as usual. Also, seeing as schools are open again, I doubt they'll have must problem with socially distanced exams.
