For 2024 we have made changes to some of our regulations and procedures. The table below lists some of the main changes and where you can find more information in the handbook. Please look out for the NEW icon for details of all changes.
If you are a centre within the EU, you must obtain a European Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) number at your own cost, and provide us with that number promptly. If you do not provide your EORI number, we will not be able to send you the necessary exam materials, and we are not responsible for any loss or damage you suffer as a result.
Inspection Report Forms and outcomes are confidential between centres and Cambridge and must not be shared outside of the centre, e.g. on local news forums or social media.
We will not accept any new registrations from any school or Associate using ‘Cambridge’ or ‘Cambridge International’ in its name and/or brand unless it is located in a city or town called Cambridge and is only serving students in that location. We reserve the right to assess each registration on a case-by-case basis.
We aim to overcome inequality in relation to all protected characteristics for all our qualifications in all areas of assessment activity. These activities include:
S2.1 the assessment development process
S2.2 the arrangements made for candidates who require reasonable adjustments (access arrangements or modified papers) in order to access our qualifications.
There is also a timetable generator on Direct which can be used to generate a downloadable file containing useful information based on your entries. You can refer to this file when you create your own timetable. To find it, log into Direct, then go to the ‘Timetables’ link on the relevant series dashboard.
The downloadable file is not a replacement for your centre’s exam timetable, and it is your responsibility to make sure that all necessary details are recorded in accordance with our guidelines on your final exams timetable.
Entry changes are not permitted after the issue of results if the candidate has received a grade (including Grade U). This means that we do not permit an entry change:
The only exception to this is if the entry change is from one carry-forward entry option (e.g. ‘June carry-forward’) to a different carry-forward entry option within the 13-month rule (e.g. ‘November carry-forward’).
Contact us as soon as possible if you find you have made an error with your entries.
Candidates can carry forward their internally assessed component marks achieved in the June 2023 series to complete a Cambridge International AS Level in the November 2023 series. This AS Level cannot be carried forward towards a Cambridge International A Level in the June 2024 series.
Candidates can carry forward their internally assessed component marks achieved in the November 2023 series to complete a Cambridge International AS Level in the June 2024 series. This AS Level cannot be carried forward towards a Cambridge International A Level in the November 2024 series.
Reasons to apply
(a) You unexpectedly do not have enough space or facilities to conduct the exam in this series.
The end of the exam
If we do not receive returned scripts from you within these timeframes, it can cause delays in marking and grading, and impact results being released on time.
We are changing the script packet return envelopes from plastic bags to brown paper bags. If you have plastic script packets left over from a previous series, you can still use these to return scripts to us. We have carried out rigorous testing with the paper bags to make sure that question papers are still secure in the new packaging. You must also follow the regulations in section 5.4.1.
Centres are responsible for the conduct and administration of our assessments. Centre error is usually an unacceptable reason for special consideration; this includes, for example, making incorrect entries and providing incorrect exam timetables.
New points added:
You must submit applications within seven days of the last exam in the series of the syllabus affected. If you have been made aware of a candidate’s circumstances after the seven days, please continue to submit the application for our review.
Candidates must be seated so that they cannot see the work of other candidates. The minimum distance that you must seat candidates is 1.25 metres away from each other. This distance is measured from the centre of one candidate’s seat to the centre of another’s.
If you need to seat candidates so that they are not all facing in the same direction, you must make sure that they cannot see each other’s work. You can use screens between candidates to achieve this but may need to use additional invigilators to monitor candidates if their view of candidates will also be obstructed.
Invigilators must make sure that candidates use original published books only, not photocopies, unless they have received approval from us. Invigilators must also make sure the texts do not contain notes, underlining, highlighting or anything else the candidate has added. Any breach of this regulation must be reported to us.
