KARACHI: Thousands of students in Pakistan are set to receive their Cambridge International Exam (CIE) O Level, Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge ICE results on Tuesday (today) for the June 2021 exams series including the replacement exams held in July and August this year.

About 30,000 Cambridge International students in Pakistan sat their exams in the June 2021 series. This included those who sat the replacement exams in July and August, which were put in place after their original exams were stopped in May and June.

This year Cambridge International ran exams globally for its June 2021 series only where it was safe and permitted to do so. In Pakistan the decision was taken to stop the Cambridge International O Level, IGCSE and AS Level exams to keep students safe, following a surge in the Covid-19 cases at that time.

Cambridge International engaged with the government, education authorities, and schools in Pakistan to find a solution that would enable students to progress with their education. It agreed to offer replacement exams for 14 of the most popular Cambridge O Level and IGCSE subjects taken by majority of XI students in Pakistan, so that they could complete their studies in these subjects, before starting their next school year.
