International school exams in March and June 2021 

Cambridge International expect to run the March and June 2021 exam series in all countries as planned, where it is permitted and safe.  

All Cambridge schools and private candidates can apply to not sit some exam components in the June 2021 exam series if their learning has been disrupted by Covid-19.

Private candidates can apply for an exemption through their local British Council office. School candidates must apply through their school. Further information on how to apply for exemptions will be announced soon.

Pearson Edexcel has also confirmed that the exam series will continue as planned.

Oxford AQA have yet to make an announcement about the 2021 exam series. 

We will continue to support schools and students by working with the awarding bodies to understand what these changes mean for you. 

You may notice a delay in our responses to you due to a high volume of communication. We thank you for your patience.  

UK school exams cancellations 

GCSE and A Level exams have been cancelled in England by the UK government this June because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Teachers’ estimated grades will replace exam results.  

International exams are not affected by exam cancellations in the UK.

Your health is our priority, and we are closely monitoring the health and safety situation and government advice in your location. 

Should the situation in your country change and affect plans for exams, we will liaise with exam partners on the next steps and provide regular updates.

Our work with awarding bodies and you 

We work with three UK awarding bodies – Cambridge International, Pearson Edexcel and Oxford AQA – to offer school exams internationally. These are international GCSEs/iGCSEs, O Levels, AS Levels and A Levels. 

Although we administer exams in partnership with awarding bodies, we are not involved in their grading processes.  

We will continue to work closely with schools and awarding bodies to provide the best support possible for you.
