All teenagers are now under increasing pressures to perform in exams

From schools seeking to maintain their league table position and larger class sizes, to Government changes to the curriculum and the fiercest competition now for first choice university courses, the best-paid jobs and top careers: young people are under ever-increasing pressures.  For many they experience only an overwhelming sense of expectation. They feel expected to perform at school to the highest standards, to cope with the pressures to perform plus any related stress - and succeed every time.
Pressure to perform in exams has intensified. Since 2015 an intentionally more 'rigorous' linear assessment exam-led structure has been in place. In almost all subjects now, ongoing coursework no longer counts towards the final assessment grade. Success or failure rests entirely on exams - exams all taken at the end of the course. Mid-year retakes have stopped in all but GCSE English and Maths. A Level results no longer take account of mid-course A/S Levels. A Level grades are awarded based only on exams, all taken together at the end of the second - and final - year of school.
