Text of Petition:
My son in Year 11 had fully prepared to sit his GCSE Numeracy exams on 2nd and 4th of November. On October 31st he did a Lateral flow test as advised by the Welsh Government. This was positive, followed by a positive PCR test. This meant he could not sit his exams despite being fully prepared by the school for them at this time. He should not be - and neither should others who have Covid - be disadvantaged by the pandemic. They have had to work so hard to get to this point.
E-mails from exam board and Welsh Government not being supportive at all.
