Gov. allowing iB to be teacher assessed like A level & gcse (iB en route cancelled)

Today the Minister of Education and Ofqual released official government survey of CANCELLING IB MAY 2021. Summary states they would allow iB exams to be cancelled and teacher assessed just like A level (no algorithm).

Please fill out [the official gov. consultation SURVEY](https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/ACIHL2/) the gov. produced, FILL question 12: select follow arrangements of A level if you want iB cancelled - don’t need to fill out the rest of the qs as they’re not applicable to iB.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: this survey produced by the UK minister, also applies to you as they want qualifications to be the same internationally - the more responses the better!

Please fill this out & SHARE the link on PLATFORMS ESP TWITTER - we finally have a voice!!!

The official gov. document can be found [HERE](https://www.gov.uk/government/consul...ations-in-2021) and pg25 speaks about iB.

are you sure you want to have teacher-assessed grades? I mean it might be very unfair for students who have crappy teachers or very strict ones who might give them lower grades, or simply when the teacher doesn't like a student... tbh not the best choice imo

IB not announced anything till now but some of my friends think it will be cancelled . For me, I want to take the exam but I think it will be fair as teacher-assessed grade may involve bias

yeah, right, I just thought from what you wrote that maybe your teachers informed you of something and got stressed that they are for sure cancelled haha
