The President of Cairo University thanks Cambridge University

Professor Mohamed Othman Elkhosht, President of Cairo University, thanked the British Council, the competent authorities in the UK, and Cambridge for the courage shown in reconsidering and reviewing the assessment criteria of IGCSE students, which triggered discontent and frustration in many countries around the world because of adopting an assessment system that is both unfair and contrary to what was previously announced. 

Professor Elkhosht said that reviewing the assessment methods and the return to fairer evaluation criteria is a respectable model, as it does not insist on adopting an erroneous assessment method. He stressed that the courage of Cambridge, exhibited in its return to logic and fairness, restored the confidence of students and parents in it once again. 

It is worth mentioning that Professor Elkhosht, President of Cairo University, was the first to raise the problem of IGSCE students and to adopt their cause in several media statements in which he denounced Cambridge policies, asked Cambridge to review its assessment methods, and called upon the British government to review such policies, to which Cambridge officials responded.
