Summer Public Examinations Timetables
Summer 2020 GCSE/IGCSE public exams have been cancelled
Summer 2020 A Level public exams have been cancelled
PLEASE NOTE: All pupils are issued personal timetables. It is very important that pupils adhere to their own timetable as some sessions may be altered due to subject clashes. The school holds a coursework and exam briefing for all pupils explaining the rules and regulations. Pupils are given a copy of the JCQ rules at the beginning of the school year and with their timetables.
JCQ require all pupils sitting public examinations to be available up to and including 24 June 2020. Should any examination board need to reschedule an examination for any reason (national disaster, act of terrorism, state funeral etc) this will then be moved to a suitable date up to and including 24 June 2020. Please read the JCQ announcement below:
"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 DfE 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."
