With the global Coronavirus outbreak and how unpredictable the situation has become, Cambridge International was left with no choice but to cancel May/June 2020 exams worldwide.
This includes Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O Level, Cambridge International AS & A Level, Cambridge AICE Diploma, and Cambridge Pre-U.
Earlier this month, Egyptian president Abdelfattah Al-Sisi announced the suspension of schools and universities for two weeks. Today, prime minister, Mostafa Madbouly, declared that the suspension has been extended for two more weeks given the current circumstances. Similar decisions have been taken in many countries around the world, making it very difficult for schools to hold examinations in such uncertain times. However, Cambridge International urged students not to freak out.
In order for students’ efforts not to go to waste, Cambridge will be working with schools on assessing their achievements using the “best available evidence”. There are still no announcements regarding how this will be carried out. However, it’s guaranteed that students will receive both a grade and a certificate from Cambridge International.
According to Cambridge International’s official website, schools should expect updates and clearer guidance on how to move on by Thursday the 26th of March.
To all the students out there: don’t worry, don’t stress, and stay safe! Best of luck and keep up the hard work!
