‘I put my heart and soul into them’: A-level students on downgraded results

Thousands of A-level students across England woke up to disappointing results on Thursday after the Ofqual exam regulator’s algorithm downgraded marks. Due to school closures and exam cancellations amid the coronavirus outbreak, Ofqual said it was forced to develop a statistical model to calculate and moderate assessments.
Hafsah Mohamud said she missed out on her two offers to study medicine after her grades were downgraded and Josh Reid said his place at Oxford University was in the balance after he received a C in philosophy when he expected an A. 
Things were better for Jana Abdal-Rahman, who secured a place to study international relations at Royal Holloway, University of London, despite getting slightly lower grades than expected.
