Key Dates:

GCSE Exam Season: 11th May – 23rd May 2020

Contingency Day: 24th June 2020

Candidates should also be aware that examination awarding bodies have arranged a ‘contingency’ exam day. This has been put in place “in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations during the June 2020 examination series”. This ensures that there is an option to postpone an exam (or exams) in the event of an incident and rearrange them for a later date. Exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the date of their first, up to and including Wednesday 24 June 2020.

Results Day: 20th  August 2020 

Post Results Services: From 21st  August

Post results services are available after the publication of results, including clerical rechecks and a review of marking. Awarding bodies charge fees for these services. If you would like more information about this then please contact the exams officer at school.
