On Tuesday, the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) issued O level and IGCSE results of its November 2020 exams.
According to a statement issued today, the results have been sent to about 460 schools ranging “from private schools to semi-government schools across the country”.
This year Cambridge International took the decision to run exams for its global November 2020 series, as the majority of Cambridge schools globally said they wanted to hold exams where it was safe to do so and followed government guidance,” said the CAIE.
As per the statement, the release of today’s results means that thousands of Cambridge students across Pakistan, like their counterparts around the world, can continue their educational journeys as soon as possible despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
About 175,000 students sat the exams in more than 130 countries during November last year and the university issued more than 470,000 grades for its International AS and A-Levels, IGCSEs and O Levels.
“Amidst the challenges in these unprecedented times, both students and teachers quickly adapted to the new ways of learning,” said Uzma Yousuf, Country Director for Pakistan.
She acknowledged collaboration amongst all as it made it possible for us to conduct the examinations safely and has enabled our students to continue with their education.
Uzma Yousuf also thanked Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood and all provincial education ministers “for extending their support which enabled us to hold the exams in Pakistan”.
Islamiyat, Pakistan Studies, Urdu and Mathematics were the most popular subjects taken in Pakistan.
