Equality and Human Rights Commission

EHRC will continue our discussions with exam regulators on transparency of data and an effective appeals process to make sure that no students are disadvantaged.

Melanie Field, Executive Director at the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said: 

“Results day is a challenging and stressful moment for any student.

"Students this year have faced the additional pressure of a global pandemic and decisions about their grades being taken out of their control.

"We are pleased that the grades predicted by teachers for A-Level and GCSE students in England and Wales will now be respected and not down-graded by algorithm, so that these young people can realise their full potential through education.

"However, we will continue our discussions with exam regulators on transparency of data and an effective appeals process to make sure that no students are disadvantaged.”
