Government`s U-Turn On Results Processing Leads To A “Scramble”

The government`s response to student protests over the way results are processed might lead to a "scramble" for places in sixth-form colleges.

The government`s response to student protests over the way results are processed might lead to a “scramble” for places in sixth-form colleges.

Recently students in the UK had taken to the streets, calling on the government to change the method used to process their results, which has prompted an immediate response from the government.

Following the students` outcry, the government revoked a controversial algorithm which downgraded millions of A-level results and announced that students will get teacher-assessed grades on Thursday.

However, the government`s sudden U-turn on the processing of results has become a cause for concern as GSCE results better than anticipated will be released.

As more students than usual are expected to pass with good grades, a London college has warned that students will now have admission on a first-come-first-served basis.

James Kewin, the deputy chief executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association, said: “In many respects, the immediate challenges faced by sixth form colleges mirror those faced by universities – increased demand for places combined with pressure on space because of Covid restrictions.”

In a report, Nick Graham, the executive principal of Harris Academy Chafford Hundred school, said that there “will be an increase” in the number students who want to get A-level courses. She said that she told the current students that if they get good results they will go to their chosen courses.

Nevertheless, she added: “It may mean it is a little bit more difficult for us to fit in as many students from outside the school as we would normally take in.”

A number of schools in the UK have tweeted about “limited places” in their sixth forms as they are expecting “unprecedented demand” ahead of results day.
