Does anyone know whether the autumn AS level exams will go on? I heard there is a possibility of it being cancelled due to the virus.

Are you talking about the autumn retakes? So far, the plan is for these to go ahead as normal- I think as many steps will be taken as possible to stop them being cancelled in the UK.

However, if exam centers in Dubai can't open, then it may be that they can't go ahead there. I'd speak to your exam center and see what they know, but it's very early days!

No not the retakes, I was supposed to take an exam in May-June 2020 so I’m guessing since that didn’t happen I can take it this Autumn? Are autumn exams held just for retakes?

If you are talking about the regular autumn series of International AS levels, then I believe they are still going ahead. There is nothing on the CIE website to suggest otherwise, although your school will know if government regulations will permit them to be held in Dubai this year.

In the UK they are, but internationally there is an Autumn series. AFIAK the autumn series is going ahead as normal but this might vary by country?

Im planning to do it privately thru the British council so I can’t really reach out to a school to find out more details. I’m specifically looking for information regarding the AS Biology XBI11 exam. Thanks for your response tho, do let me know if you get to know any new information!

I understand. Why don't you drop the British Council in Dubai a line to see how they see things re the autumn exams?

I believe their online customer services have reopened in UAE --- [email protected] g 600 529 995.
