Exam Information

All students in year 11 12 & 13 have been issued with an updated Exam information booklet for 2021-2022 via email.
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 was also issued to be read in conjunction with the booklet.  
There is a copy of these documents at the bottom of the page.

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 2021-2022:

We had a period of fully timetabled PPE’s for Year 11 & 13 during November and in January/February – this included a number of external exams during this period.

Year 10 also had a period of timetabled core PPE’s at the end of June.

Details of future internal exams will be posted here when available, with the next session due in November 2022 for Year 11 and 13.

Summer 2022 – External GCSE’s and GCE’s

The overall general exam timetable for summer 2022 is posted below for information.

The Elizabethan Academy – GCE and GCSE results day arrangements

The JCQ have released and confirmed the dates for results days in the summer.  Details of our specific timings are below:

A Levels – Thursday 18th August 2022 – in main hall 
10am to 1pm 

GCSEs – Thursday 25th August 2022 – in main hall 
10am to 1pm 

Any student who cannot, or does not wish to come into school, will also have the option of receiving their results remotely – if this method is required then the student must contact Mrs Miller, The Exams Officer directly on

This should be done well before the end of the summer term to ensure this request can be actioned, and the email verified well in advance of either results day.  Students can use a personal or school email address for this.

If students want their results posting out they need to provide a stamped addressed envelope before the end of the summer term, but would need to understand we are not allowed to post out until results day itself.

Results can only be issued to students (not their parents) and any follow-up requests must also come from them. Other people are allowed to collect students results if they have a signed note of authority from the student – this must clearly state who is collecting the results and the person must be able to show ID to support this.

Information regarding enquiries about results processes, procedures and fees are posted at the bottom of the page and students will also receive details in their results envelopes.

Exam Certificates

Certificates, for qualifications achieved during the Academic Year 2020-2021 were issued by post to former students in January 2022.

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

Arrangements for the issue of this year’s certificates for qualifications achieved during the Academic Year 2021-2022, will again be by post once certificates are received in November 2022.  After collation and checking they will be issued during December/January.

Please therefore ensure you contact us if your address changes following the end of the summer term 2022 to ensure you receive them via the correct address at that time.  You can notify Mrs Miller Exams Officer of any address change by emailing

A further communication will be sent regarding these arrangements on results day and in the Autumn term.
If you require any further information regarding exams, timetables, results and certificate collection please email the Exams Officer:
