So because you're **** at writing exams everyone else should suffer a detriment? Thank God the world doesn't work like that.

I have been revising - I know the facts but my application is bad and that’s what I’m struggling with. Not everyone is good at exams anyway 😅

Exactly, exams shouldn't be cancelled to prevent further grade inflation.

I never said everyone was good at exams but that doesn't mean they should be cancelled because then everyone gets top grades and how is that fair?
Ask your teachers for help on application

I’ve never sat a real exam before - I’m in year 13 and everyone I’ve spoken to has been affected badly - everyone in my h&sc class is struggling with application

You've pointed out another reason to why exams should go ahead. Imagine going to uni without sitting any formal exams, the detrimental effects will be felt later on. Also, what does exams have to do with your application? It sounds more like your school's problem and not caused by exams. I would expect a year 13 to have better reasoning skills than this.

Depends on how bad the OP's arguments are.

If you've never sat an exam before and want your next ones to be cancelled, how do you plan on doing a degree?

When I say application I mean applying the content to the questions
