Our update this week announces a change to the results release date for Cambridge International AS & A Level, Cambridge Pre-U and the Cambridge AICE Diploma. Schools will also find a reminder of our exemption regulations, a link to our interactive guide, and answers to frequently asked questions about June 2021 exams.
Finally, schools will find information about our new directory to help private candidates find Cambridge International Schools and British Council offices that are accepting entries for the June 2021 series.
We would like to thank schools for continuing to share questions and suggestions with us. We are grateful for your input and continued support.
We will be in touch again next week.
As a result of your feedback, we plan to publish results for Cambridge International AS & A Levels, Cambridge Pre-U and the Cambridge AICE Diploma on 10 August 2021 at 05:00 GMT/UTC, instead of 12 August 2021 as previously announced. This is to align with the UK A Level results release date.
The release date for Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O Level and Cambridge ICE results has not changed. We will publish these on 12 August 2021 as planned. This aligns with the release date for UK GCSEs.
You may need to withdraw candidates for Covid-specific reasons and, to support you, we have extended our withdrawal deadline until 17 April 2021. We recommend you keep your entries on Cambridge International Direct until as close to 17 April as possible, to reduce the administration work you may need to do if you withdraw candidates early and then re-enter them. Until 17 April you can withdraw candidates on Direct and still receive a credit.
If candidates miss every component of a syllabus for Covid-specific or medical reasons, you can still withdraw them up to seven days after the last timetabled exam in the syllabus has taken place and you will receive a credit. Email us to let us know.
This interactive guide should help you understand the routes to grade options available for your candidates. Start by choosing one of the options to find out more about how that route works, how to use it, and how you might use other routes alongside it.
If you have applied, or will be applying, for component exemptions for June 2021 then please remember your candidates must not sit any exam from which they are exempt. All our exemption regulations are detailed in the supplement, available on our website.
Private candidates can use the new directory to find Cambridge International Schools and British Council offices that are accepting entries for the June 2021 series in their region. The page also includes contact information for each centre.
How should I mark exempted candidates on the attendance register?
You must mark exempted candidates as 'absent' on the attendance register. You must not put a '0' or any other information except 'absent' or 'A'.
You must give each candidate a written record of the exams from which they are exempt. Give this to them at the same time you give them their statement of entry. You need to give a list of candidates with exemptions to your invigilators for any exams where you have one or more candidates with exemptions. You need to keep a record of your communication with your candidates about their exemptions and the lists you give to your invigilators.
You can find all our advice on our Covid-19 information page.
If you have any questions, you can review our frequently asked questions, or contact us via our Help website. For British Council Partner Schools, please contact your local British Council representative.
We wish everyone in the Cambridge International community well at this time.
