Cambridge International released the results of its June 2020 series on time, to thousands of schools around the world yesterday. Altogether more than 950,000 grades were issued, to almost 4,000 schools in 139 countries, said a press release.
In Bangladesh, this year the most popular Cambridge O Level subjects are Bengali, English language and mathematics syllabus D and the most popular Cambridge International AS & A Level subjects are mathematics, physics and chemistry.
Globally, the most popular Cambridge International AS & A level subjects this year are English (general paper), math and physics.
Mahesh Srivastava, regional director (South Asia) at Cambridge Assessment International Education, said, "2020 has been a transformational year and has had a huge impact on teaching and learning across the world. With school closures, Cambridge learners were not able to take their June exams and therefore we developed a rigorous process for awarding assessed grades."
Christine Özden, chief executive of Cambridge International, said, "In a unique situation Cambridge International had to respond quickly so that our global community of students stayed safe, but could progress with their education."
"We engaged worldwide with other awarding bodies, governments and universities to develop our process for awarding grades. It works across the many different countries in which we work, and is similar to the process used in the UK," she added.
"I hope our students around the world can now move forward with their lives, and come through this experience stronger and more resilient, after what has been a very challenging time for everyone," said Christine Özden.
