If you're a young person of modest means who works hard and wants an even chance out of life, then today's results are a reminder of why it's a good idea to pay close attention to politics, and to always use your vote. This stuff affects you directly. Be angry with purpose. x
#AlevelResults Predicted A*A*A*. Expcetionally low performing school. No one had ever achieved a Cambridge offer before in my sixth form. Performed at A*A*A consistently. Today, A*AB. Dropped two grades in Sociology. Denied Cambridge place. This is what has happened to me.
▪️Huge reductions in grades for disadvantaged pupils

▪️Huge rise in top grades for private schools

Our education system has always been unequal but this is the first government to have developed an algorithm to make sure of it.

  • R is our school's top English student. She got 9 at GCSE. She got A at AS. She is studious, precise, deeply thoughtful. She has just had her A Level grade reduced from A* to C, apparently just because she goes to a disadvantaged school. It might help if you liked her poem.
  • I regret to inform you that the UK Transport Secretary thinks that 4am on Saturday is on Sunday:
  • “I wanted to make everyone that believed in me proud… I knew I could get those grades if I actually did the exams.” Mithushan Thiagarajah had an offer to read medicine at Cambridge and was predicted 4 A*s. Today he was downgraded and the offer has been withdrawn. #Newsnight
