Why would you change the exam system? Why would you want to make it harder? Have young people struggling to achieve what they want to achieve. It's fine to challenge us, I like to have to stretch my brain in school sometimes because when you finally find the answer you feel like you've really achieved something. The only thing is exams are tough already. There is a lot of stress on young people, family problems, their own struggles, GCSE's, and there trying to make it harder? It's fine for the people that make these decisions, the MP's, as they have never faced the struggles of being a normal teenager. Okay, maybe not the best choice of words but what I mean is that they have gone to top schools with small classes. Their parents have been able to afford the the best education and let's face it they haven't been in school for a while. How do they know how hard exams already are? How much you need to achieve and do while in school to try and get a job? I think, they really need to let us have our say in this one. This one time where the decision doesn't effect our parents, but effects us. These changes-that will happen-won't effect me while being in school but when the new exam system comes in, the exams I will(hopefully) pass won't be important anymore. They have been saying that the GCSE system is hard to understand and doesn't give everyone a chance but have they actually asked us? I don't think they need to make the GCSE system harder, or change it for that matter. I think the exam system is right. Part coursework and part exam is the way it should be but there even taking that away(or might be). I don't like exams so coursework is probably a great thing for me, there are people like me who don't want to sit an exam and then my grade would be only on that? No pressure! Like I said how is it fair? I'm struggling to pick four options(In Year 9 so picking my options soon!) but at least I get to have a choice on which four I pick and I can choose whether I want the one's with more coursework.
