Abdulrhman mohamed started this petition to Cambridge International Examination and

I am writing to say that looking with the issue in eye of equity , equality and justice CIE exams should be cancelled in Egypt as in all middle eastern countries not just because of the poor efficiency of online teaching as many claim but also because Egypt complies with all the reasons for cancelling international CIE exams

1) schools have been closed for igcse students for more than a year and educational centres as well which both makeup more than 50% of our educational process such as laps and etc..

2) Our exams are locally and internationally recognized , so they don't trully have to be treated as local exams as they arent even in same timings and also Egyptian goverment has no authority in delegating them but exceptionally they have authority to cancel them due to global pandemic circumstances and impacts , which are serious in our nation .

3) Local authorities didn't allow local exams for grade 10 and 11 3 days ago

what we demand is the following

1) the cancellation of CIE exams

2) replacing them with TAGS and unseen exams ; which are equivalent to real exams but with local checking services

3) taking the decision urgently and immediately as there is no time left .

why we demand the following ?

starting from feb 14 we recognized the chaos which will be happening soon enough when the minster have said that he received a letter from cambridge international saying that exams will run as scheduled in egypt as the Thanaweya Ama last year did run with great success , but here is the following we asked the minster for a copy of the email sent from cambridge but we got no valid answer , we also tried to make it clear that unlike local exams we have our own tanseq which would only be greatly affected by running of exams as said before .

we also stayed quiet till 7 days ago when we came to recognize that ALL countries which are taking the same Exam Code as egypt will replace exams with TAG and that leaves us the only country taking the igcse exam , which will greatly affect the curve , further more affect the tansiq.

also other students which didnt sit for exams can still make admission for university in our beloved country , so the tansiq will be greatly , affected again ,

Yes we arent fully prepared for exams but also we arent fully prepared for TAGS so all in all the same outcome will occur . the effect on tansiq will be lower and the equal chances for egyptian students inside and outside egypt will be assured .

2) ACT , AND EST 

we demand also that equivalent exams get cancelled due to the impact that will occur if any student happened to get covid19 during examination or before . we are all working together to assure our safety , we also want to work hand to hand with the government to assure the safety of all international high school students . 

we were quiet to observe how is it going to settle but now we saw that the government is yet undeceive so we decided to help ..

3) IB exams 

as they were cancelled in many countries and the decision of cancellation is yet left to the government we decided to take action to there side too and demand cancellation of there exams as well. 

we are all Egyptian students , we worked hard , we are ready for exams but not ready to throw our lives away and infect our families and everyone we may stumble upon  

and we want to say that as students ALL HARM FOR OUR MENTAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH FROM SITTING FOR EXAMS WE GIVE THE MINSTRY OF HEALTH AND THE MINSTRY OF EDUCATION THE FULL RESPONSIBILITY UPON
