“The May 2020 examinations, scheduled between 30 APR and 22 MAY for Diploma Programme and Career-related Programme candidates will no longer be held, as we believe it to be the most responsible and ethical way forward."

“Depending on which programme International Baccalaureate students are registered for, they will be awarded a Diploma or a Course Certificate which reflects their standard of work," it adds.
