Petition Change the balance of exams and coursework to improve students’ mental health
The 1-9 GCSEs is damaging students’ mental health. Before, when coursework was part of GCSE exams, mental health issues were much lower amongst students. Coincidence? I think not.
A recent survey shows that over 1/4 of UK students suffer from stress related mental illnesses, such as anxiety, and this number is on the increase, with a newly introduced GCSE exam spec that puts more pressure on students than ever before. Suicide rates are increasing. Sign this petition & help improve the education system.
