Alevel 2020 vs Alevel 2021Watch
I am a 2021 student and I think it has been unfair to both just in different ways. Whilst everything you have said is true, there have been disadvantages for 2021 students. For example, depending on subjects and school, a lot of ours were based solely on those exams, whilst the 2020 students grades were based on their overall performance so it included topic tests etc. Furthermore, our exams were announced months after we had been told by the government that we wouldn’t be doing exams. Also, for the 2020 year group, you were at school for all of year 12 and most of year 13. By the time lockdown was announced most subjects would have finished most of their content and any exams that you did were done before that. Which means that your learning wasn’t actually affected by lockdown (of course the exams were, but the actual learning part wasn’t). For our year, we were in lockdown for just over four months of year 12, and just under three months of year 13, which means most of the content was covered over teams, or we were just sent textbook pages or powerpoints to read.
