The WLGA welcomes the Minister's announcement confirming that examination results this year will be awarded on the basis of teacher assessments. We thank the Minister for listening to our and others’ calls and, above all, the voice of learners. This is the fairest approach, trusts the professional views of teachers and will ensure that Welsh students are not disadvantaged compared to students elsewhere in the UK. It is therefore important that the UK Government follows this approach given several Welsh schools and students study subjects through the English exam system.
The WLGA will feed into tomorrow’s Senedd Committee session and it is important that the advice given to the Minister in the run up to the publication of the results is scrutinised and that the Welsh Government urgently reviews Qualifications Wales.
