Cambridge International Examinations is coordinating with British Council in a bid to tell faculties, college students, and fogeys, that it’s going to strictly implement all coronavirus security measures.
Last month, Cambridge had introduced that every one O Level and IGCSE exams would begin from 10 May 2021 in Pakistan.
Cambridge International AS & A Level exams shall be held as per the present timetable, ranging from 26 April 2021, as agreed with the federal government of Pakistan, the assertion mentioned.
In this regard, Cambridge International’s Country Director Pakistan Uzma Yousuf mentioned: “We have been working closely with the federal and provincial governments, who have given us extensive support and advice, to ensure we run exams safely, and securely for our students.”
“If a student is not comfortable taking their exams in the May/June 2021 series they can withdraw their entries, and sit any future exam series without any additional financial burden.”
It is pertinent to mention that Cambridge had introduced extensive extra measures in January this year to support schools and students with taking exams in the May/June 2021 series.
These included adjustments to aspects of assessments and exemptions from components that are difficult to run during the pandemic.
Cambridge also expanded the process of its special consideration to enable students to receive a grade, when for good reason they miss some exams. This also includes Cambridge O Level and IGCSE exams that students in Pakistan will not be able to sit before 10 May.
“More than 80% of Cambridge International college students worldwide are taking their exams in May/June 2021. Schools in many of the 160 nations Cambridge International works in are working exams, together with India, Sri Lanka, China, the US, Malaysia, and Nepal,” it mentioned.
