Students are petitioning the government to abandon the automated algorithm that has resulted in 40% of students receiving A-Level grades that are one or two grades lower than their Centre Assesment Grades (CAGS). CAGs are based on teacher-assessed evidence such as classwork and previous exam results. The students argue that the algorithm is discriminatory towards students from lower performing schools, as the software takes into account historic results and is not indicative of teachers’ predictions.
David Wolfe QC is instructed by Leigh Day in this case.
