Iím still unsure how so many people still trust the MSM and politicians and believe anything they say as fact.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8647523/Steve-Bannons-links-Brexit-Indicted-Trump-aide-ally-Nigel-Farage.html

The Daily Mail pointing out that Steve Bannon has links with Brexit. Not half as much as the bloody Daily Mail has.

Is this the start of a shift to 'Brexit is turning out s**t so we're going to start blaming anyone we can for it?'

Yes, I was talking about the exam situation (why aren't the media calling it 'The Exshambles'?)

Careful and objective estimated results from teachers are a long way from 'My mum thinks I'll get ....'

in terms of their exam results?

I could be wrong, but my understanding is that they'd be classed as external students attached to a certified exam centre - a school or college. In simple terms, they'd usually go and sit their exams in the correct conditions in a school / college with the regular schooled students from that centre as formal exams need to be sat in specified conditions and at the same time across the country with approved invigilators present. I'm not sure how the predicted grades will have been submitted but I'd expect they would have sat mocks in the same way.

If this is the case, then they'll have been subject to the same farce as everyone else over the last few days....

I know it's a tiny minority Mal, but do you have any idea what's happening to home schooled kids this year?

There's still a huge mess to sort out. Some students will still be faced with missing out on their first choice - even though they have the grades and an offer from a university is a legally binding document.

Williamson said he's removed the cap that was put in this year in terms of accepting students - however, if places are already offered based on the fiasco of last week, coupled with the covid-19 guidance that institutions have to work by, there will still be students (mostly from less affluent / racially diverse areas) who will not be going to where they should be.

Meanwhile, Williamson is still Education minister and Johnson is still awol.

Are students now getting their deserved uni places back? Or do they still not have them as theyíve been given to other students already?

At last , seems like the consensus is , this lot in power at the moment are shaping up to be the worse government in this countries history , at one of the worst possible times , some of us knew of Boris's potential , pre election ! at least the criticism and abuse has ended when this is pointed out , anyone can be fooled , at any age , nothing to be ashamed of !

Ta-daahhh

Gavin Williamson does the exact opposite of what he said last week, while Johnson is on holiday. Leadership, yay!

Give a few weeks and it'll come out how much of your money they paid some mate of Cummings for the algorithm that so spectacularly shafted clever kids in poor schools. But no-one will notice, because this shower of a govt will be well into the next cycle of policy f**c up - outrage - u-turn by then.

yep - the inevitable climb down with no admission of error.

Scotland, Wales and N.I. already had the sense to go with Centre Assessed Grades so it will be a U-turn dictated by the positive action of the three other nations while Williamson and co. have just fumbled about. If you were that rubbish at your job do you think you'd still be employed next week....?

just popped up as was writing...

PHE will be scrapped in name only, the amount of people involved will stay the same, wages the same and job roles the same. Itís like any other rebranding change the logo and header paper. Still under the same over arching ministerial control.

Standby for the u turn over A level results 👍🏻 They had 2 weeks to fend this off but head in sand outlook. Should have gone with the teachers expectation and let the Universities sort it out over the next few years as they will have space with no great influx of foreign students at the mo! 😷😷😷

one word. Weasel.

Corrupt to the core is this Government...scrap PHE and employ Dido Harding of failed test and trace app fame (amongst other money for nothing projects)?? Literally privatising the overseeing health body for a public service.
