As currently we understand that Cambridge will only able to make the announcement on 07 April 2020, if student not intend to withdrawn the June exam registration, CAIE need to award student final grade based on the existing continuous assessment /internal exam marks (but subject to CAIE confirmation) as the June sitting exam is cancel. Another option, student is given a choice to withdrawn the exam before certain timeline, it consider not register for June sitting exam.  It will not award any final grade as it is consider student not register the exam. So, we need to wait for CAIE confirmation on 07 April 2020.
