CAIE, British Council host Cambridge Principals’ Forum


LAHORE: The Cambridge Assessment International Education with the British Council hosted a Cambridge Principals’ Forum in Lahore, attended by principals and representatives from Cambridge Associate schools.

The attendees discussed new developments in the Cambridge curriculum, including the Cambridge O Levels, IGCSE and Cambridge International AS and A Levels, which are taken by students in over 600 schools in Pakistan.

Cambridge Assessment International Education Development Division Director Claudia Bickford-Smith presented the key session ‘From Paper to Pixel’, where she explained how the Cambridge International was innovating in the areas of onscreen testing and reporting. She also highlighted some of the challenges of implementing new technologies on a global scale. This, she said, includes maintaining the highest standards of data integrity and robustness for all of Cambridge’s 10,000 schools in more than 160 countries.

Speaking to the gathering about the Cambridge programmes and qualifications, Uzma Yousuf, country director of the Pakistan Cambridge International, said, “Cambridge International not only provides exceptional prospects for students, but also develops their analytical and critical thinking skills, which are vital for success at university and in life.”
