Safaa Shaaban started this petition to Appeal Cambridge International Examination Appeal Processes and

Open up your appeal process to include clerical, administrative and human errors!

We IGCSE and A-Level students, parents and teachers around the world worked with Cambridge International Education for many years and trusted their internal grading system.

During the exceptional period of covid-19 you CIE introduced exceptional measures to deal with students grading system and put a halt on the rules and regulations in your handbook.

By doing so schools and teachers suddenly took on the role of 'The Assessor' while being blindfolded into a grading system they had never seen nor had prior experience.

Students, parents, teachers and schools worked extremely hard to gather the evidence suggested in your Updates. Data was collected and interpreted by teachers and schools alike. These interpretation varied from school to school based on the understanding of what it is that CIE is requesting from the school.

With all the stress that accompanied this pandemic and lock down, mistakes were prone to happen, misunderstanding your frequent and sometimes contrading updates are not far fetched. You yourselves admitted mistakes in your grading system and did a U-turn accepted teacher predicted grades. Scotland first minister apologized to her students and also did a U-turn. We've also seen Ofqual's head Sally Collier resign over the exams grading fiasco and yet another U-turn took place.

Finally, the long awaited Appeal Update was released to everyone's horror and shock. Your appeals process is very stringent and restricted to a handful of cases. CIE did not take into consideration the natural human errors, clerical errors, teacher's errors. Is it because you're entitled to make mistakes and U-turns and they are infallible.

With more international qualifications being offered by many boards such as AQA and Edexcel we're taking notes on who offers decent candidate care in difficult scenarios such as covid-19; the likes of which has never been seen!
Ofqual took the lead in dealing with the appeal processes and accommodated their students, as to not hinder their future progress, it's time for you to follow their lead otherwise you might find yourselves marginalized.

We're utterly frustrated, disappointed and disgusted at your rigid appeal processes hence we're appealing your appeal process. Furthermore we need our grades protected similar to Ofqual. So Open up your appeal process to include clerical, administrative and human errors!
