Shafqat Mahmood the Federal Minister for Education in a recent tweet announced that Cambridge Assessment International Examination (CAIE) is going to revise grades for May/June 2020 session. Many students after the results announced took to social media and expressed their outrage regarding the grades awarded. Not only this, but students blamed school mismanagement and negligence for not following CAIE’s guidelines accordingly.
However, the Federal Minister for Education immediately took notice and contacted CAIE to revise all grades. He also expressed his concerns about student’s frustration and anguish over the results and that he would do everything in his authority to get things done.
Great news. Our tireless effort has been successful. Cambridge has decided that grades for June 2020 would NOT BE LESS THAN PREFICTED GRADES SENT BY SCHOOLS. PLUS Where a grade issued last week was HIGHER THAN THE PREDICTED GRADE, THE HIGHER GRADE WILL STAND.— Shafqat Mahmood (@Shafqat_Mahmood) August 17, 2020
CAIE however, has given their verdict. As per Mahmood, all students will be awarded predicted grades sent by schools and those who were given a grade higher than predicted will remain same. Not only this, but Cambridge will be announcing the new grades shortly and also informed schools to communicate the new development to students as soon as possible. Regarding this, the education minister tweeted:
Cambridge has also said that they will be announcing new grades shortly. To remove any uncertainty they have also asked SCHOOLS TO INFORM STUDENTS OF PREDICTED GRADES SENT TO CAMBRIDGE. This information was provided to schools on result day
