List of FAQs

+I am an international student and my examinations/assessments have been cancelled. What happens now?

We are currently liaising with examination boards, as well as colleagues in educational institutions and services around the world in order to decide how best to assess your application if you cannot take your exams this year. In some cases, exam boards and schools will still award grades even if you cannot sit exams. You can find advice and guidance for some of these boards below:

Cambridge International
College Board (AP)
Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education
Oxford International AQA
Pearson Edexcel International A levels

UK Naric has some useful information about school closures and examination arrangements around the world.
