The pages will be regularly updated with any new advice and resources.

For schools outside the UK our final entry deadline for the November 2020 series is 16 August. Fees for late entries will be charged as normal. However, a school will receive credit for any withdrawals made before the end of the day on 30 August. This is to support schools who may be uncertain about making entries because of the ongoing impact of the pandemic.
This update is for students for whom the November 2020 exam series would normally be the last series for which they can sit exams and gain their Cambridge ICE certificate.
We recognise that some schools may need to plan their academic year differently due to the impact of Covid-19, and therefore we will allow an exemption for Cambridge ICE students to the usual rule that candidates must complete all elements within 13 months.
The exemption will apply if November 2020 would have been the final series for the candidate for ICE (that is, they are also using syllabus grades from a previous series within the last 13 months).
If candidates meets this criteria, they can count grades awarded from the November 2021 series instead of November 2020 series. It is still the case that the candidates may only use grades from a maximum of two series.
If a candidate has already been entered for November 2020 you have until 16 August to withdraw them and receive a credit for the entry.
This exemption is in addition to our previous announcement for candidates who were due to complete Cambridge ICE in June 2020 series.
As we explained previously, in the absence of AS Level marks in June 2020, students will receive a grade for Cambridge International AS Level, but will not be able to carry forward their AS Level result to A Level in the usual way. Therefore, we have put in place alternative arrangements. See our website for the latest information about carrying forward marks.
Information about submitting forecast grades and internally assessed marks in the November 2020 series.
We have changed some of our processes to help us meet the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, and to support schools working remotely. As part of these changes, we are asking you to use electronic methods to minimise delays and allow us to prioritise our confidential despatches.
Therefore, for the November 2020 series, you need to submit your forecast grades and internally assessed marks electronically using Cambridge International Direct. This means your pre-exam despatch will not include Forecast grade forms or Internal assessment mark sheets. We will send your pre-exam despatch in mid to late September.
We are also asking you to use the electronic Statements of Entry generated on Cambridge International Direct. Please do not use hard copy Statements of Entry forms from previous exam series. Where your region has told us that it is critical for you to receive hard copy Statements of Entry, we will continue to send them to you in hard copy.
We realise many schools are now considering how to manage coursework requirements for syllabuses in the November 2020 series and we will be updating our FAQs with advice in the coming weeks. See the Help page for the latest information.
