With the November 2020 series now starting, this update includes information and reminders on holding the exams.
In the ‘support for schools’ section, we have details of a free upcoming webinar on the Great Teaching Toolkit with Professor Rob Coe.
Finally, we have included reminders of information about adaptations to syllabuses.
We are very grateful to you for working patiently with us through this challenging period. We encourage you to keep in touch with us if you have questions or would like advice.
On 28 October we will hold two webinars, presented by Rob Coe, on the Great Teaching Toolkit: evidence review. The webinars are free to attend and will be recorded. Please see further details.
The October exams officers eNews goes out next week, containing more information about administering November 2020 and June 2021 exams.
Covid-19 has had a huge impact on teaching across the world. You may be returning to school, or your school may be closed, or you could be adopting a blended teaching approach. Whatever your situation, we are committed to helping you and your learners. To this end, we have a huge range of support, resources and guidance for you here:
Just to remind schools that we have published a full guidance factsheet on holding exams in the November 2020 series.
We understand that there may be circumstances when a school needs to withdraw all of its entries because of national or local restrictions that relate to Covid-19. Your centre must first tell us they need to withdraw entries and keep the entry on our system until you receive instructions from us. Please email us.
We know that many of you have questions about special consideration for the November 2020 series. To support you, we have created a special consideration supplement, which contains extra information and should help to answer your questions. Due to the changes we have made because of Covid-19, you should use this supplement, rather than section 5.5 of the Cambridge Handbook, when deciding whether you should apply for special consideration for your candidates.
Adjustments to components for June 2021 Cambridge IGCSE Literature in English (0475) and Literature in English 9–1 (0992)
We have received feedback from schools asking for our adjustments for Cambridge IGCSE Literature in English in June 2021 to be more flexible. In response to this feedback we have made changes to the guidance for this syllabus. Our complete guidance so far to adjustments can be found for our March 2021 series and June 2021 series.
