Welcome to the exam information section.
Key dates for 2019/20 are:
*N.B. The GCSE & A Level exam timetable includes a contingency day set by the exam boards which this year is Wednesday 24th June 2020, as contingency in the event of significant national or local disruption to examinations. It is hoped that the contingency day will not be needed but students should remain available up to and including Wednesday 24th June 2020.
Dates for 2020/21 will be published here once they have been finalised.
Update on Summer 2020 Exams:
Following the cancellation of exams this summer, the JCQ have published an infographic which outlines the three phases in this year’s awarding system. This can be found by clicking on the following link:
Results days will be held in school on the published dates and arrangements for these will be emailed to students and parents by the end of term (17th July 2020).
Following Ofqual guidance, exam boards have recently confirmed that they will be offering all of the UK regulated GCSE and A Level qualifications that were available in Summer 2020 in an exceptional Autumn series. With the exception of Art and Design, grades will be based on exam performance alone, with no non-exam assessment (NEA). Although timetables are still being finalised, exam boards are aiming for AS and A levels to be held in October and GCSEs in November. Only candidates entered for the summer 2020 series of exams will be eligible to enter exams in this exceptional Autumn series. It is hoped that further information about this Autumn exam series will be available by the results days.
