Today’s update includes information on the new and existing resources from across the Cambridge family to support teachers and school leaders, particularly in relation to adapting teaching methods.
We are including more details of our process for awarding grades in the June 2020 series. This includes a link to a factsheet on the statistical standardisation process, as well as details on post-results checks and appeals. It also includes a link to a blog post on comparisons between predicted grades and historical performance data.
We will send our next update to schools on 5 August 2020.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on teaching across the world. Some of you may be starting to return to school or adopting a blended teaching approach. Whatever your situation, we are committed to helping you and your learners.
We have a selection of tools and resources to help you adapt your teaching and maximise your impact. Browse webinars, guides, blogs and podcasts for practical tips on teaching, learning, mindfulness and wellbeing. You can also join our community discussion forum, dedicated to supporting and learning from other teachers, by sharing your experiences, challenges, ideas and resources.

We have already explained the steps that we will take to award grades in June 2020. Statistical standardisation is the fourth and final step of our process.
This factsheet includes the latest update on our statistical standardisation process and explains its different stages.
We plan to release more details about our standardisation, including the formula we are using in the process, in the week of 10 August 2020.
The post-results checks available to schools for the June 2020 series are different from those available in a normal series. We have three post-results checks that allow you to check the results we have calculated for your candidates in three different scenarios:
The deadline for applying for post-results checks is 20 September 2020.
To support centres, we have produced a ‘Post-results checks and appeals for the June 2020 series’ supplement to the Cambridge Handbook. This contains more details about each of the post-results checks, and the two-stage appeals process. You can find this on our website along with all the key dates and deadlines:
Fees for post-results checks and appeals are available via Cambridge International Direct.
Dr Anthony Dawson, Deputy Director, Assessment Standards and Quality, has written a blog post comparing teacher predicted grades with historical performance data, and explaining how the statistical standardisation process will be used to award final grades.
You can find all our advice on our website.
If you have any questions, you can review our frequently asked questions, or contact us via our help website.
We wish everyone in the Cambridge International community well at this time.
