All schools are doing the a level grades differentially so its very unfair to everyone doing alevels? My school is being really strict not giving us any help and giving us 2020 papers so we have no idea what to expect (basically sitting full a level but missed over half of my time at sixth form). I know I'm not going to get the grades in one of my subjects and I will miss my offer. This makes me very anxious for what is to come I may have to retake the year or try and get on a foundation year. I really want to do my bioscience course at Russell group uni, do you think unis will be more lenient considering the inconsistency across schools?

There’s going to be grade inflation for sure. So I doubt there’s going to be any leniency.

I’m sure each teacher will take into account individual circumstances. If one school has been affected badly then they will be more likely to take account of it.

It depends on the subject of each school. It may look nicer to you but it doesn’t look as “nice” to them.

If you don't get the grades you don't get the grades, just redo the year and go uni a year later. No big deal
