Cambridge Foreign, the world’s biggest supplier of international education for children aged 5 to 19, has released the results of its March 2021 exam series in New Delhi.
Despite the obstacles that the epidemic has posed to too many Indian schools, students, and families over the last year, over 7300 students got their Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A-Level results.
The majority of Cambridge schools across the country said they wanted to hold tests where it was safe to do so and followed Government instructions; therefore, Cambridge International decided to run tests for its March series in India this year. Nearly 336 schools across the country submitted over 52,000 entries for Cambridge IGCSEs and Cambridge International AS & A Levels.
Cambridge International worked with education authorities, the government, local governments, and schools to create detailed guidelines to ensure the March series operated well.
Thousands of Cambridge students around the UK will be able to resume their studies as soon as possible following the release of results, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Indian students prefer the March series since it allows them to receive their results in time to fulfill local university application deadlines.
“I would like to congratulate all of our students on their results,” Mahesh Srivastava, Regional Director, Cambridge International, remarked. As a result of the epidemic, each has faced terrible times and faced numerous hurdles, including school closures and teaching and learning from home. I hope that all of our students who received their results will be able to move forward with their plans, whether that plan is to continue their education or start a career.”
“This year’s March exam series went off without a hitch owing to the tremendous support and efforts of all of our Cambridge schools, instructors, and parents. Now results are the product of everyone’s hard work during these trying times, and I hope they inspire kids and teachers to keep working hard to achieve great things.”
“The world of education has suffered many dilemmas due to the pandemic,” Sravani Rao, Principal, Delhi Public School International, Saket, New Delhi, stated. Even in these difficult conditions, Cambridge International has remained exceptionally well organized and has completed all of its tests on time and without incident. The students profited immensely from the stability of the exam style, scheduling, and results in dissemination, which was extremely valuable when everything seemed to be in flux. It has allowed them to stick to their schedules for applying to institutions and planning plans.
“The transition to online teaching and evaluations has been the most difficult issue this academic year. Our instructors have acclimated swiftly to the transition and support Cambridge International’s online training programs and all of the support resources they have supplied. Whereas online education has proven to be quite effective, online examinations have yet to progress in the same way. The benefits of holding physical tests have been enormous for both students and teachers, and they have performs according to Cambridge’s high standards.”
The most popular Cambridge IGCSE subjects in the March exam series this year were mathematics, physics, chemistry, first language English, and biology. Mathematics, English General Paper, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics were the most popular Cambridge International AS & A Level subjects.
Cambridge curricula and credentials are available to students in over 500 schools across India. With over 70 courses accessible at Cambridge IGCSE and over 55 courses available at Cambridge International AS & A Level and three test series each year, the Cambridge Pathway curriculum provides students and schools with flexibility and choice.
