Unprecedented exam stress from new GCSEs (Rescue Our Schools)

Rescue Our Schools survey showing that the new GCSEs are causing unprecedented and serious levels of stress has been backed by the teenage anxiety expert and former governmental mental health czar, Natasha Devon

The survey showed:
* A third of parents said their child was “very stressed” and they were worried about them
* Three quarters of teachers said their students were “very stressed and anxious – more than usual”
* Three quarters of both parents and teachers said the new exams were “less fair” than the old ones
