The British Council has decided to resume all Cambridge exams from May 15. The decision was made after discussions between Cambridge International and British Council teams, considering their responsibility to ensure the safety of all the candidates, their parents, and staff members in case of any unforeseen incident.
All exams scheduled for May 15 and onwards, including both the morning and evening shifts, will be carried out as usual across the country. The Cambridge University Press and Assessment Country Director, Uzma Yousuf, and British Council Country Director, Amir Ramzan, expressed their commitment to providing a secure and safe environment for the students appearing in the exams.
Earlier, the British Council had cancelled the exams scheduled for May 10, 11, and 12 because of the countrywide protests after the arrest of PTI Chairman Imran Khan. However, today, the Islamabad High Court granted two-week bail to the former prime minister in the Al-Qadir Trust corruption case and barred authorities from arresting him till May 17 in any new case filed against him till May 9.
