Cambridge International Assessment canceling IGCSE and A-level exams for May/June 2020 will not affect your study abroad plans

web-01-1 Cambridge International Assessment canceling IGCSE and A-level exams

COVID-19 epidemic outbreak casts uncertainty on schools worldwide

 

 A rapid change has occurred in the last days since the outbreak of the global epidemic Coronavirus, Cambridge International has decided to extend school closures to May and June 2020, because it is impossible for many of our schools to take Cambridge exams. We have worked with our community schools, which need as much inevitability as possible in this difficult time. Our first priority is to protect safety and health. Our schools and teachers ensure that everything is safe for our students and support them to continue their education.

 Canceling IGCSE June exams was a hard but necessarily decision

So today, we made a tough decision, and we decided not to run any of the international exams in May / June 2020 in the U.S. They include Cambridge IGC, Cambridge or Level, Cambridge International as & One Level, Cambridge Ace Diploma and Cambridge Pre-U. We realize that students were working hard on these tests. We will work with schools to rate students who have been evaluated using the best evidence available. 

 

Cambridge will still issue certificates for its progressing students in June 2020

Students will obtain degrees and certificates from Cambridge International, according with the knowledge and skills they possess in their research programs. This will ensure that students will not face the downsides of these results in special circumstances. We offer schools with instructions on how students can take these degrees. We are talking about universities around the world, which study these unprecedented conditions that fall in admission decisions so that students can follow their educational journey as soon as possible. We are also aware of the potential impact of this attitude on motivation and learning for students. Many of our schools work hard to provide online educational support for student learning. We will continue to provide a wide range of support and resources to schools, teachers, and students. We have a dedicated page on our website, international Site that will provide schools with the latest information from Thursday, March 26 as regularly as possible. We know that schools need clear direction. We work all day long to provide valuable results to students in many countries where we work.

We work with universities from different regions to update our contacts for the May / June 2020 series. In particular, we have direct contact with universities in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada and Australia, who are the student’s major destination countries in Cambridge. Universities in the four countries understand our curriculum and are committed to supporting Cambridge University applicants in their admission process.

What does the coronavirus outbreak mean to your study abroad plans?

What does the coronavirus outbreak mean to your study abroad plans?

The answer is, in short, not to worry,  the outbreak is expected to be contained within 3-5 months. With Studygram study abroad becoming easier


The problem of the coronavirus epidemic began months ago in China and spread in the world to form a global problem that unites the efforts of all countries, governments and institutions in searching for ways to prevent the spread of the virus and fight it in every way. Many countries have taken severe measures to fight the epidemic and limit its spread widely. Through what has become known as isolation or social quarantine, which the individual isolates himself from society for a period of not less than 14 days, which is the incubation period of the virus in order to reduce transmission. Please note that these measures are likely to escalate in light of the rapid spread of this epidemic, and there are currently treatments and vaccines available.

The important question that we want to answer is what does this epidemic mean for your plans to study abroad?

Most institutions and ministries of education, universities and schools in the world have applied social isolation measures by stopping the process of direct education in universities and schools and moving to education via the Internet temporarily pending the decline of this global epidemic. Officials and decision-makers in the world believe that this crisis needs 3 to 5 months to resolve it to be before the start of the study for the year 2020-2021. Thus, there is no fear of delay in your future and your plan to study abroad next year.

Education will continue in schools, universities, remotely completely through the Internet until the crisis is completely resolved, even if it takes longer. Specialized websites have been created in this field to facilitate students obtaining their lessons online. The academic year might be postponed a few months until the situation is resolved.

Below we will review some of the measures that countries have taken towards their universities to reduce the spread of the Corona epidemic,

In Britain, Ireland and most of the European countries, all universities and schools temporarily turned to distance learning, some examinations were canceled, and others were transferred to electronic tests on the Internet. Universities in Britain have stressed that they are still open as libraries, consulting, research and study areas operate as usual. A government official said that the student must make sure that he will achieve his educational qualification on time and that his undergraduate degree bears the same value.

In America, instructions were given to stop studying and not to return students to the university campus after a period of 14 days, renewable, depending on the laws of each state. And many universities issued directives for their students not to travel to China, South Korea and Italy, and the system was transferred to the distance study until the end of the period of containing the Corona virus, to resume the study in the new semester 2020/2021

UK to Bring Back Two-Year Student Work Visa Begining from Academic Year 2020-21

UK-work-Visa-Extended-to-TWO-years-AR

The return of the two-year post-study work visa for international students was reintroduced by the British government 

There is good news for International students who are planning to study in UK next year. The major announcement made by Boris Johnson’s government that: two-year UK post-study work visas will be reintroduced in 2020.

Which means now the new post-study work rights would be granted for international students enrolling at UK universities from the 2020/21 academic year, meaning the nation is likely to attract more international students to its universities in the future.

Studying in UK is a rewarding experience and the education you receive from there is recognized all over the world. However, as per the current rule, graduates with bachelors or master’s degrees are allowed to look for work for only four months. But thankfully from next year, all international graduates could qualify for a two-year period to work in the UK, increasing their chances of finding long-term employment after studying.

The Department for Education said, “The new immigration route will be available to international students who have successfully completed a course in any subject at undergraduate level or higher at a higher education provider with a track record of compliance, and have Tier 4 [student visa] leave at the point the route is introduced. This includes students who start courses in 2020-21 at undergraduate level or above.”

This new policy would have no cap on numbers of visas and would allow students to apply for a job as per their skills and suitability after completing their studies. The government’s aim is to recruit talented graduates in disciplines such as maths, engineering and technology.
