The International Baccalaureate (IB) has announced that exams will not take place this year in the UK. This decision was made in consultation with exam regulator Ofqual, and means that all IB, GCSE and A Level exams are now cancelled for UK students for the second year in a row. The International Baccalaureate is today informing schools outside the UK on whether their exams will go ahead. The ofqual advisor he was speaking to said that, even if the IB announced that the UK reviews would continue, the decision does not apply under the Ofqual regulation.
In addition, dedicated IB teams will continue to work closely with schools, providing timely information, support, resources and opportunities to ask questions and comments. Last week, the IB informed schools outside the UK about whether their exams would go ahead, after announcing a two-track to its grading process this year, in which schools in some parts of the world would take exams, while others would award grades through teacher evaluation. This should serve as an example for all education departments in the world and especially for the IB, since dual-sense examinations are totally and utterly unfair.
