Exams

June 2019

External examinations are now well underway.

The last GCSE exam is timetabled for MONDAY 17th JUNE and the last GCE exam is on WEDNESDAY 19th JUNE. However, please read the following information received from JCQ:

In preparation for Summer 2019, all JCQ awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 26 June 2019 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. This is consistent with the qualification regulators’ document Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland – https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/exam-system-contingency-plan-england-walesand-northern-ireland  The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common examination timetable is in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations. Centres must, therefore, inform candidates that they must remain available until and including Wednesday 26 June 2019 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan. 

May I please remind students that they must hand in their mobile phones/i-pods/ smart watches/i-pads and any other electronic device which can store data etc to an invigilator at the start of ALL exams, regardless of the type of exam. These items should not be left in your bag. They will be returned to students at the end of the examination. It is a regulation of the Examination Boards that students must not be in possession of such items in an examination room.

May I also remind students of the need to be on time for exams. It is disruptive to other candidates in the examination room if you arrive late. There is also the possibility that the examination board may not accept your paper for marking.

PLEASE NOTE: In preparation for Summer 2020, all JCQ awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 24 June 2020 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. This is consistent with the qualification regulators’ document Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland – https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/exam-system-contingency-plan-england-walesand-northern-ireland  The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common examination timetable is in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations. Centres must, therefore, inform candidates that they must remain available until and including Wednesday 24 June 2020 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.
