Ahmed Faruqi started this petition to Local IB Schools offering DP courses

Internationally, the IBO is offering schools the choice to either conduct local examinations, or have Diploma course certification awarded through internal assessments and other factors due to COVID-19 concerns. A few months ago, the COVID-19 situation in Pakistan was slowly improving, with cases and COVID-related deaths decreasing in quantity on a regular basis. Thus, a decision was made by local IB schools to go forward with examinations. However, based on recent statistics, the number of COVID-related deaths has been on the rise and there are fears of a third major wave. 

We, as IBDP students in Pakistan, appeal to local educational bodies, relevant schools, and organizations to reverse their decisions regarding the examination s due to major impacts on our academic growth as the majority of the school year was conducted through online mediums, which negatively impacted the learning process.

Safety is also a huge concern since we fear for our own health, and for the health of elder family members, For whom the virus can prove to be fatal. 

Considering these implications, we appeal to local educational bodies to review their decisions regarding examinations. a
