Cancel Mock Exams started this petition to Diana Segărceanu and

During the pandemic students around the world had difficulty with studying due to the sudden closures of school shift to online where schools were unprepared with making an online class successful. Romanian International school students have faced more issues than most countries. The schools were shut down in March 2020 until September where the schools opened with a hybrid model where the teachers not give full attention to online and the class students also distractions which would not be allow the student to focus in class . Then yet again schools got fully shut down  back in the end of October 2020 which disrupted learning and schools still unprepared to teach students online. Then towards late  January reopened with restriction's and the hybrid model,  but this time many students, parents and teachers got sick with Covid 19 making physical classes to shut down and reverting to online , Everything was here and there which makes it a stressful enjoinment  for students to study. Then very early in the year Edxcel announced they would cancel exams globally .By the end of March 2021 Cambridge announce cancellation of exams in a selected list of countries . Cambridge specifically said they have cancelled exams in Romania because of the rising covid cases which has created unpredictability and the recent development of schools closing also major learning disruptions the students had with the closures of schools which makes students disadvantaged in exams.   They have said they have made this decision in the wellbeing of students and staff. But the schools announced they want to do physical exams which has the  full syllabus and a whole month of exams. This is adding stress to student and endangering their livelihoods, when cancelling exams was aimed to relieve students from the hardships  during covid 19. We all want the mocks to be cancelled because of the major disruptions we had during lockdown and we still have the schools are unable to finish teaching the syllabus and if they even did it was in a rush and the student don't understand anything it will hard for student to get a good grade with the mock and counting the mock as the most indicator for your IGCSE and A level grade is unfair . Many schools around the world are not doing this for IGCSE and A level due to the worrying increase in covid. The  rising covid cases in Romania has seen with an increase in deaths , Orthdox  Easter is coming around soon we know some people wont adhere to the rules and celebrate without caring about other peoples safety which will lead to large spike in covid remincesnt of last year as well also the  global situation is getting worse in other major parts of Europe , American regions and Asia most notable the situation in Japan and   India where countries like these have new variants which have forced to lockdown and Romania could be next. .

The new variants are evidently indicates more and more younger people are affected , so students who are taking IGCSE and A level  mocks are more likely to get covid. If we allow students to take these physical exams we will be risking their futures and their wellbeing.

Please sign this petition-  sooner the better as student will sit some mock exams this week. Please share and email the respective schools or call if possible . You can find the details on the respective schools websites on the list of people who can make change.
