Important information

Exam contingency day Wednesday 24th June 2020

We have been informed by the JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications), the providers of regulations and examination practices across the UK, that they are planning to hold an examination contingency day on Wednesday 24th June 2020.

This will be used if a significant, unexpected event arises nationally or locally during the examination period, such that no students (or a large number of them) are unable to take an examination when planned. Of course, we all hope there won’t be such disruption and that the contingency day will not be required.

Therefore, all candidates must be available to sit examinations from the start of the Summer 2020 series in May 2020 up to and including Wednesday 24th June 2020, regardless of the dates on their individual timetables.

Examination students will not be expected to be in school that day, unless they have a rescheduled examination, however, they must be available and not away on holiday.

This decision is not a school decision and applies to all candidates in all schools.
