COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update- Edxecel/Pearson

Update from Pearson website on 20th March 2020.

As the COVID-19 outbreak has caused schools around the world to close, we’ve been working with you to support teaching and learning throughout this ever changing global situation. Our focus is on keeping everyone safe first and foremost, and on supporting students in all countries to achieve the qualifications they need to progress to universities around the world, further education and employment.

This is an unprecedented global situation, with governments applying different local changes, laws and guidelines based on their country’s situation. We understand the different situations that you may be facing, and we will be supporting all our international customers whatever your context.

Where schools are open and a country is deemed safe, exams for iPrimary, iLowerSecondary, International GCSE, and International A Level will take place for students outside of the UK in May and June 2020.

Where schools are closed and public exams are not permitted due to COVID-19, students will have the opportunity to receive a grade for qualifications where an entry has been made. These will be awarded using the same principles as the UK GCSE and GCE A Level which will not have exams in any country in May/June 2020. Further information will be available in the coming days confirming the process to be followed.
