Ramadan April 13th, 2021
Dear Parents and Students
We are at the Holy month of Ramadan and we would like to inform you about the new timings without affecting the education of your child.
I have sent last week an email to upper secondary students involved in IGCSE informing them about the official cancellation of seating and oral examination from Cambridge Exam. I am glad the Examining Board after several claims from our side have listened to us and came to a logical, wise and safe decision. Students will be awarded the IGCSE based on teacher assessments. We are requested to submit the grades to Cambridge International between mid-May and mid-June and the school has to provide details of internal quality assurance of the process. This means that the students in KS4 and KS5 are not on holiday and should focus more than ever on their studies, attend lessons online and do all the assignments given by their teachers. Like all other students in the school, they will have to work also in order to get their third term report which is necessary when a transcript is required by the Ministry of Education when applying to universities.
