LONDON, Aug. 14, 2020 (Xinhua) -- People take part in a demonstration outside the Department of Education in London, Britain, on Aug. 14, 2020. The British government announced Wednesday a last-minute "triple lock" for A-level and GCSE students, which could raise replacement grades for exams cancelled in the COVID-19 pandemic. The move will benefit pupils who have been unable to sit GCSE or A-level exams during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is crucial in deciding how best to continue their education, where to look for work or training, or which college or university course to apply to.
