CONTINGENCY DAY 24 JUNE 2020. In the highly unlikely event that there is national disruption to a day of examinations in summer 2020, the awarding bodies will liaise with the qualification regulators and the Department for Education to agree the most appropriate option for managing the impact. As a last resort the affected examinations will be rescheduled. Although every effort would be taken to keep the impact to a minimum, it is possible that there could be more than one timetable date affected following the disruption, up to and including the contingency day on 24 June 2020. Centres will be alerted if it was agreed to reschedule the examinations and the affected candidates will be expected to make themselves available in such circumstances. The decision regarding the re-scheduling of examinations will always rest with the awarding body. The centre must conduct the examination on the scheduled date unless instructed to do otherwise by the awarding body.

Where candidates choose not to be available for the rescheduled examination(s) for reasons other than those traditionally covered by special consideration, they will not be eligible for enhanced grading arrangements. Centres must therefore ensure candidates and parents are aware of this contingency arrangement so that they may take it into account when making their plans for the summer. However, the awarding bodies will not insist upon candidates being available throughout the entire timetable period as a matter of course.

Regulations, policies, and other useful documents:

Timetabled public examinations are held on the same date and time nationally, as dictated by examination boards.  The regulations for the conduct of most examinations and assessments are set by JCQ, the Joint Council for Qualifications.

If a student is unable to attend any assessment, please contact the school immediately.  Medical or other evidence may be required.


Results and certificates:

Exam boards publish grade boundaries on their public websites on results day and information about regulations and procedures can be found here www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/results-and-certification.

There is a Year 12 Celebration Evening in November every year when certificates and other awards are presented. This year it was held on Thursday, 28 November 2019.

The school retains examination certificates that are not collected at the Celebration Evening. Students who did not attend should contact the school to make arrangements to collect their certificates.  Students are reminded to ensure certificates are kept safely, as examination boards no longer issue replacements, although proof of results are available and there are links on exam board websites.
