All students in year 11 & 13 plus any year 10 students sitting external exams this year, have been issued with an updated Exam information booklet for 2019-2020.
A copy of the booklet is available here for reference:
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. A copy of this guide is available here:
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 2019-2020:
As you will of course be aware following the announcements in March that GCE and GCSE exams will not be taking place this summer, we have removed all the exam timetable information for this academic year.
This is of course a very worrying period for many reasons, regarding exam grades Ofqual have now made the decision that Teachers will submit expected final grades for this year, which will help inform students results for Summer 2020.
