Poor A-Levels can adversely affect a young person’s educational and career prospects. Strong academic results are all the more important in light of the anticipated disruption to the job market as a result of COVID-19.
Poor A-levels can also result in the loss of a university place, with knock-on consequences to students and their family.
The Ofqual guidance published in April 2020 (updated in May) states that schools should use their 'professional experience to make a fair and objective judgement of the grade they believe a student would have achieved had they sat their exams this year.' There is little doubt that some students will receive an under-prediction of their grades.
All our expert advisers are legally qualified and fully up to date with the rules regarding A-level appeals. They will help students, parents and schools appeal the unfair decisions of schools and awarding bodies, including lower than expected grades and findings of cheating and misconduct.
Our role is to provide sound advice and produce a persuasive appeal to put the student’s case in the best possible light. The aim is to achieve a mark that best reflects the student's true ability.
One parent commented:
"Within 10 minutes of my email to Alpha Academic Appeals we had a meeting the next day booked in London to discuss my son’s situation and a possible appeal. I found Daniel to be very well versed in his subject and his advice invaluable. He completely removed the emotion out of the situation and produced a very well written and thought through appeal.
I can only urge other parents in a similar situation to make the investment."
