WHAT ‘moun­tain’ must pupils climb to be ready to take ex­ams next year (Mail)?

They have not taken months off school, as has been claimed by Labour.

The lock­down came be­fore two weeks of Easter hol­i­days. Then came a week off at halfterm and then the usual sixweek sum­mer hol­i­day.

At most they have lost six weeks’ teach­ing time, but most re­ceived on­line lessons.

SALLY BUT­LER, Rust­ing­ton, W. Sus­sex. AS A teacher, I do not be­lieve there is a need to rad­i­cally al­ter the 2021 ex­ams.

As all the stu­dents will have been equally dis­ad­van­taged due to school clo­sures, it should only be nec­es­sary to al­ter grade bound­aries. N. J. WOOT­TON, Wallasey, Wir­ral.
