Thank you for your bearing with us as we have been working with the Department for Education, Ofqual and other stakeholders to understand the detail of the UK Government’s decision to not hold exams in May/June.

As you may have already seen, we have this morning updated our guidance with our decision to continue offering a May/June International GCSE and International A Level examination series to our International Schools:

  • Where schools are open and a country is deemed safe, exams for iPrimary, iLowerSecondary, International GCSE, and International A Level will take place for students outside of the UK in May and June 2020.
  • Where schools are closed and public exams are not permitted due to Covid-19, students will have the opportunity to receive a grade for qualifications where an entry has been made. These will be awarded using the same principles as the UK GCSE and GCE A Level which will not have exams in any country in May/June 2020. Further information will be available in the coming days confirming the process to be followed.
