We're sorry that we are unable to meet you personally at this year's UCAS Admissions Conference. We want to reassure you that we're still here to support you going forward. On this page, you will find links to the latest information from our qualification experts and how we can continue to assist you with the admissions process. 

During these uncertain times, at Cambridge Assessment we are working as a community to ensure that our learners and schools across the world stay supported. It is important to us that we continue to provide world class qualifications, and help students obtain the fairest outcome possible, with the quality and integrity they would expect. 

As a global assessment and education organisation, we are responding to events both in the UK and worldwide. The implications of the pandemic are extensive, and work closely with governments and education officials around the world to lessen the impact on our learners and respond in similar ways wherever possible.

Cambridge Assessment International 

On 23 March 2020, Cambridge Assessment International Education announced that we would not hold the June 2020 exam series anywhere in the world, to protect the safety of students and teachers. We have taken steps to provide students with fair grades using alternative assessment methods, so students could get on with their educational journeys as soon as possible.

At OCR, we know that this is an unsettling time for teachers, students and their parents who will be anxious about the cancellation of exams this summer. We'll be with you in the weeks and months ahead so all of your hard work is recognised and your students can progress with the qualifications they deserve. Read more.
