During an interview on the “Geo Pakistan” morning show, Abidi emphasized that students and schools are significant stakeholders when results are announced. Over 45,000 students expressed disappointment with the results, which were determined using an average points system due to the cancellation of regular exams amid political unrest after the arrest of former Prime Minister Imran Khan on May 9.

Abidi noted that schools charge substantial fees and share in students’ successes, such as admissions to prestigious universities like Harvard. He proposed that schools consider not charging fees for rescheduled exams in October/November, should such circumstances arise due to unrest. Students could receive separate tuition to prepare for these exams.

Additionally, Abidi suggested that Cambridge engage in dialogue with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) to clarify the grading methodology. He suggested organizing a meeting between Cambridge officials and university vice-chancellors to address the impact of grades on university admissions and scholarships.

Abidi mentioned that students can also challenge their grades since Cambridge provides the option of home-delivered marked papers.

He highlighted that Cambridge International remains open to students and that they can present their cases regarding their grades. Notably, Cambridge International, affiliated with the University of Cambridge, is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for students aged 3 to 19.

Results from the June 2023 exam series are set to be released to more than half a million students globally, including over 100,000 in Pakistan, covering IGCSE, O Level, and International AS and A-levels.
