The controversy over A-Level results this year has led to massive over-subscription at lots of universities. GCSE results faced a huge backlash too. 

So, next year, how long your school stayed open during the pandemic may matter more in determining grades than pupil knowledge or aptitude. How should universities respond?

Our experts include:

  • Sir Steve Smith, former Vice Chancellor at Exeter University and now the UK government's International Education Champion
  • Sir Chris Husbands, Vice-Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University
  • Dr Gill Wyness, Associate Professor of Economics, and Deputy Director of the Centre for Education Policy and Equalising Opportunities (CEPEO) at the UCL Institute of Education
  • Anne-Marie Canning MBE, CEO, The Brilliant Club. Anne-Marie was previously Director of Social Mobility and Student Success at King’s College London. In 2018 she was awarded an MBE for services to higher education, and she is the independent chair of the Department for Education-led Bradford Opportunity Area.

Doors open at 6.25pm for a 6.30pm start - we hope to see you there!
