Exam result illegalities

Sticking with the shitshow of the week, I think this vlog is worth a watch. In it, a teacher gives his take on the current exams farce, explaining that the algorithm used to award students their grades this year wasn’t just flawed but may in fact be illegal for numerous reasons. Most tellingly, according to him, the grading system advantaged public schools over state-funded colleges, making it more likely that students would get the top grades if they went to public (private) schools. If that is true, I think it’s a scandal and a half, although  I can’t say I’m at all surprised given the bunch of Tory p’tahks currently running the country. To be honest I had a feeling that something like this would crop up.
