A retake exam will be held by Cambridge in October, where students can appear for its subjects / components which were missed due to Law & Order situation on 10th, 11thand 12th May, 2023. · Cambridge will not charge any fee for the conduct of such exams.

British Council will provide a reduced cost plan of logistics. · Re-evaluation and Re-assessment of individual cases will be carried out, where enormous difference is found to have been noticed between school assessed grades and Cambridge assessment grades.

Schools will submit requests of re-evaluation & re-assessment to Cambridge, & the schools will bear 80% of the cost of such requests. However, 20% cost would be borne by the parents. If as a consequence of such re-evaluation Grades are changed, entire fee will be reimbursed
