Hello, I am a 16 year-old student from the UK and the recent situation with the coronavirus has meant that my academic life has taken a unexpected halt. From a young age the education system tells you that to officially finish your journey in school you are too take roughly 25 summer GCSE exams, but this is dependent on the student’s curriculum. Nationwide the exams are a daunting process that teenagers must go through and the preparations such as revising that tends to begin in September is a hard journey. However, with the coronavirus being present in the upcoming months to our exams it has meant that they have been officially cancelled. This has left a disheartenment in all students lives, the hard work and the endurance we have had for many months has become worthless to an end exam. Although the government has tried to adapt best to the situation by still ensuring we all get the qualifications necessary for future careers, it still doesn’t feel normal for many students. As well as the lack of exams we have also had our school journey cut short. All schools were told that within 2 days the doors had to shut, essentially giving us two days’ notice that our journey in school was to end at the end of the week. We have all found this change desperately hard to deal with but overall happy for the safety and health of our families in this unprecedent time.
