Students fear they will not receive fair grades


Nearly two in five disadvanta­ged students are not confident they will receive fair grades this year, a report suggests.

Some 38 per cent are not expecting their results to reflect their ability, according to a survey of more than 1,300 high-achieving disadvanta­ged sixth formers in the UK .

More than a third (36 per cent) are not confident they will receive the grades they need for their chosen career or to secure a university place this autumn, the poll by the Social Mobility Foundation charity found.

The findings come after teachers across England finalised decisions on their pupils’ GCSE and A-level grades.
