Its stupid imo
government should just take the L

No matter what next yrs exams will not be fair. Different lengths of face-face teaching, more independent learning for others. Really ruins thing for disadvantaged students.

love how this wasn't done for the 2020 exams... this is what should have happened to the 2020 exams along with mask wearing during the exams, wearing gloves etc.

I'd rather have this than delayed exams. Also where the heck would I sit my exam? (I do them in a classroom not hall)

They have no choice but to have exams go ahead. People don't want standardisation of CAGs, and CAGs are almost useless without at least the threat of standardisation, (there was massive inflation even with a lot of schools lowballing, imagine what it'd have been without that) so that's a non-starter now.

I think are making up too many plans without thinking about them carefully. Next week we will probably hear something different. 🙄

I imagine some people would still do them in schools, just not everyone so you could still sit yours in a classroom.
I think the government will avoid a repeat of what happened this year at any cost - the fact that teacher predicted grades got used was something that no one considered fair. Even the A level cohort who benefitted did not consider them fair unless they got given at least their UCAS predicted grades or preferably higher as they all knew they would have done better in the exams
