Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) has announced that grades for June 2020 series will not be lower than the predicted grade submitted by school. At the same time higher grade already issued by it will stand. Further updates for schools in the regard will come on August 19.
CAIE said in a statement, “We have decided that grades we issue for the June 2020 series will not be lower than the predicted grade submitted by the school. Where a grade we issued last week was higher than the predicted grade, the higher grade will stand.”
“We will issue new grades as soon as possible. We will also share the new grades with universities and admissions organisations as soon as we can in the coming days. We will post the new grades to Cambridge International Direct.”
“In April, we asked our schools to work collaboratively with us. We know teachers worked extremely hard to gather evidence and work out predicted grades, and we have viewed a significant proportion of the evidence schools used to make their predictions.”
“In the meantime, in order to provide immediate certainty to students, schools can inform them of the predicted grades they submitted to us. We provided this information to schools on results day.”
“We are very grateful to schools for working with us so patiently throughout this challenging period. We will update schools further on this process on Wednesday 19 August 2020.”
