By Adrian Scarlett
This Podcast focuses on the scandal of A Level results being downgraded by Cambridge International. Thousands of students across the world have been negatively affected by Cambridge’s decision to ignore teacher predictions and AS grades attained at the end of Year 12. We consider the issues and offer a potential solution to the crisis.
This episode considers crisis of downgraded A Level results across the international education sector, with a particular focus on Cambridge International. 1000’s of international students have been harshly treated by a hastily configured algorithm that failed to consider teacher predictions of student performance or their AS results from the previous year. This has happened against the backdrop of Covid19 and a year of school closures and lockdowns. The school leavers of 2020 will always be remembered as the group of young people who had to overcome tremendous adversity to secure their places at University.
