Exam Information

All students in year 11 & 13 plus any year 10 students sitting external exams this year, will be issued with an updated Exam information booklet for 2020-2021 in the coming weeks.

It is very important that students read through this information and familiarise themselves with the rules and regulations which apply to exams, coursework, non-examined assessments (NEA’s) and controlled assessments, together with equipment required. They should also keep the information safe so they can refer to it during the year.

A Students Guide to Malpractice leaflet will also issued to be read in conjunction with the booklet.  

Exam Timetables

Information regarding exam dates for Pre Public Exams (PPE's) and external GCSE and GCE exams, will be posted here as they become available, but will just be general date information until exam entries are finalised.

A reminder that students, other than Sixth Form, should attend all exams in full school uniform.  All students should come fully equipped with a black pen, pencil and ruler. They will also require a compass and protractor for their Maths exams and a calculator for the Maths calculator paper and all their Science exams. 

Sixth Form students must ensure they wear their student ID badge for all exams for identification purposes.

Staying well hydrated during exams is very important, students are allowed to bring a drink with them to exams, but this must be water only, in a clear plastic bottle with any labels removed.


Exams for the academic year 2020-2021:

As you will of course be aware following the announcements recently, GCSE and GCE exams in Summer 2021 have been delayed by 3 weeks, we are currently awaiting the final general timetable, which will be posted here for information as soon as we have the finer details.

The Elizabethan Academy – GCE and GCSE results day arrangements

Updated information for Results day arrangements August 2021 will be posted here once finalised but we are able to now confirm the dates announced by the Exam Boards:

A Levels – Tuesday 24th August 2021

GCSEs – Friday 27th August 2021

Exam Certificates – updated information 19th November 2020

Exam certificates for all qualifications taken during the 2019-2020 academic year will be available for former students from late November 2020.

 In the current climate we are unable to facilitate in person collections this year and ask that students, parents etc DO NOT COME TO SITE TO COLLECT CERTIFICATES.  We will be posting out certificates to students who received their results in the summer, once collating and checking has been completed. 



Further details here:

Emails have been sent to parents of former students where we still hold contact details to verify correct home addresses to facilitate this.  If you have not received an email or phone call and your son/daughter has moved since March 2020, please contact the Exams Officer with the up to date information as soon as possible.

Distribution of certificates by post will then commence later next week and should be concluded by 4th December

Current students will receive their certificates directly in the coming weeks in school.

Exam certificates from previous years are still available for any past students but please email or phone the Exams Officer to make suitable arrangements to receive them.
