Please note: We have decided that grades we issue for the June 2020 series will not be lower than the predicted grade submitted by your school. Where we issued a calculated grade that was higher than the predicted grade, the higher grade will stand.

Cambridge International update on how we are awarding grades for the June 2020 series
We understand that the Covid-19 pandemic has been a very unsettling time for students who would have normally taken their exams in the June 2020 series.
We have put in place special arrangements for awarding grades in the June 2020 series, to make sure that you can continue with your education or work journey.
To help you understand how we are awarding grades in this series, we have included some of the key issues in the sections below.
*BST is British Summer Time. UTC is Coordinated Universal Time and is the primary time standard by which the world regulates clocks and time. GMT is Greenwich Mean Time.
Earlier this year, we asked teachers at Cambridge schools to predict grades that were informed by a wide range of evidence and an accurate reflection of the potential performance of each student. We recognise that this was a challenging task for teachers, but we trust that they have done this to the best of their ability, and with your best interests at heart.
You (and your parents or legal guardians) cannot appeal against the predicted grades your school submitted for you. If you are unhappy about the predicted grade you have received, please speak to your school directly as they will be best placed to provide you with advice and guidance on your results.
For June 2020, the predicted grades and rank order positions have been decided by your school and confirmed by the head of centre, or school principal. When your school submitted predicted grades and rank orders to us, the head of centre completed a declaration of authority.
By completing this declaration, the head of centre confirmed that the data submitted was final and correct. They also confirmed their understanding that once the predicted grades and rank orders were submitted, they would be considered as final by Cambridge International. Your head of centre or school principal will therefore be best placed to provide you with advice and guidance on your results.
As you were not able to take exams in the usual way, we developed an alternative process for calculating grades. See our Understanding results page.

Yes. We cannot speak for every university in the world, but every indication is that they will recognise them. UK universities will do so. We continue to engage with universities and will let you know if we hear any more information on university recognition.
Yes. Cambridge International plans to run a normal exam series in November 2020. You should speak to your school if you may be interested in taking exams in a later series.
If you or your parents have any further questions, please contact your school in the first instance, or check all the information on the June 2020 series.
