The grades were put through a computer algorithm instead of teachers where they considered not only the child’s predicted grades but also the historical grades of the child’s school are area. This could cause drastic changes in grades where most are driven lower than what the students deserve. Massive uproar from students are forcing the examinations councils on reconsidering the method of marking.
