As students will be aware, the official advice on the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in many countries is now to avoid gatherings of people or to restrict them entirely. Like all organisations, we are making difficult decisions to adapt to the situation.
Having consulted with our international divisions and reviewed a range of potential options for continuing our June 2020 examinations, we have concluded that none can be implemented in a satisfactory manner to accommodate our students in Malaysia and overseas. For this reason the decision has been taken to postpone all our examinations in June 2020. We do not take this decision lightly, but in these exceptional times our primary aim must be to safeguard students’ safety and welfare.
We are currently still planning for our November 2020 examinations to go ahead as scheduled. If you have entered for the June 2020 examinations, then we will automatically transfer your entry to the November 2020 session and will e-mail you to confirm once this has taken place. Should you decide you do not wish to transfer to November 2020, you can cancel your place and we will issue a refund.
Arising from this, the Intensive Revision Seminars (IRS) for the June 2020 examinations will also be postponed. We will contact all students who have registered for the IRS separately on this.
We aim to keep building up the student learning support for the new syllabus over the next few months, particularly the E-Learning platform, and would appreciate it if students can participate actively in the online discussion forums that have been organized on a weekly basis.
We wish all our students well and want to assure you we are still here to support you during these difficult times. Should you want to get in touch directly we would encourage you to do so by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
