External Examinations

  • GCSE examinations start from 11 May 2020;
  • Last GCSE exam on the National Common Timetable is 18 June 2020;
  • The Exam Boards have designated 24 June 2020 as a Contingency Day. This will be used if a significant, unexpected event arises nationally or locally during the exam period such that no students (or a large number of them) are able to take an exam when planned. Of course, we all hope there won’t be such disruption and that the contingency day won’t be needed. But students should be available throughout the exam period, including on that day, in case their planned timetable is disrupted.

When examination entries students will receive copies of their final examination timetable in March 2020.

The whole academy examination timetable can be found in the documents section below for the Summer 2020 examinations.

External Regulations
