As you may be aware, the IGCSE exams were cancelled in 2020 due to the unprecedented COVID-19 global pandemic. This year, Cambridge International has announced that the May/June 2021 exams will not go ahead as planned. As stated on their official website, they “will use a robust approach based on teacher assessment for International GCSE and International AS/A Level assessment in May/June 2021”.

However, they also announced that they intend to run an additional focused exam series for International GCSE later in the year. International students will be able to sit for the IGCSEs, so long as exams can be delivered in a safe and fair manner. In the event that your local government directives mean that exams can no longer proceed, school-assessed grades will replace the traditional IGCSE exams.

That being said, there are contingency plans in place to allow for flexibility in assessments, depending on your local situation.
