I have recieved many complaints about unfair grading and have conveyed to Cambridge the concern of students. I am hopeful that CAIE will look into it and take remedial measures https://t.co/tMzPUzcPZ1— Shafqat Mahmood (@Shafqat_Mahmood) August 12, 2020
“I am hopeful that CAIE will look into it and take remedial measures,” he said in a tweet.
Replying to a Shafqat Mehmood’s tweet, PPP leader Ali Haider Gilani said, “The government of Pakistan should write to Cambridge and protest on this discrimination. The future of our children has been put into jeopardy by downgrading the results of many students all across Pakistan and the world. Shafqat Mehmood and Press Information Department (PID) should show displeasure on all levels.”
Sir, You should also stand with your students like the Scottish government did and got their students grades upgraded. This is a big scam.— Ali Khan (@Akhany007) August 12, 2020
