Letter to Enko Education parents with children following Cambridge curriculum and enrolled for May/June exams

 In #COVID-19, Education in Africa

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Cambridge International Examinations has announced this week that: 

  • the May/June 2020 examinations will no longer be held. This includes Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge O Level, Cambridge International AS & A Level, Cambridge AICE Diploma and Cambridge Pre-U.
  • Cambridge will be working with schools to assess students’ achievements using the best available evidence. Students will receive a grade and a certificate from Cambridge International, given the knowledge and skills they have acquired in their programmes of study. This will ensure students do not face disadvantage as a result of these extraordinary circumstances.
  • More guidance will be given to schools on how students will receive those grades.

This is an important announcement – reflective of the current situation. What does this mean?

  • Continuing teaching and learning through the distance learning plans put in place is extremely important, and students will have to double their efforts. Cambridge will focus on Enko Education assessment to award Diplomas.
  • Our students still need to follow the programme in order to be ready to enter the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme next year. All courses given after April will focus on preparing them for success next year.

We are extremely proud of the action plans implemented by all our schools to provide continuity in your children’s education. Our teachers will provide all the support needed for your children, and we want to remind everyone, parents, learners and teachers, of the importance of respecting the measures taken to continue learning and teaching.

We will make sure to keep our parents and learners informed as soon as further official communication is made by the IB or by Cambridge.

Please support us by ensuring that your children’s serious engagement in following the online courses continues.
