Important Updates on examination sessions – COVID 19 situation:

25 March 2020

We are aware of the latest announcement by UK School Examinations boards not to run international examinations in the May/June 2020 series worldwide in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. 

We recognise what a challenging time this is for students and teachers, and how hard students have been working towards these exams. We are working closely with UK School Examination boards and will share more information with our schools and candidates as soon we are able. As ever, our number one priority is the safety and welfare of our candidates.

We are expecting further information from the examination boards and will provide an update as soon as we receive it.
