Examinations

The Examinations Page aims to provide external GCSE, GCE AS/A2 and BTEC details to students, parents and staff along with the exam rules and regulations. 

The main Public exams for both GCE and GCSE in 2020 will run until 24th June 2020. Timetables will be available later in the academic year.

The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 24 June 2020 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. 

It is therefore advisable that all students remain available and in the country until 26th June 2020 so that they are able to respond in the event that any contingency plan needs to be enacted.

Students are not advised to book any holidays until after 26th June 2020.

Post Results Services

Once results have been issued the Exams Office will be pleased to administer the following post results service to candidates:

  • Priority Re-marks (if applicable)
  • Non-priority remarks
  • Requests for exam scripts

Each of the above services are provided by passing on the exam board fee plus a small administration charge which is payable via ParentPay once the request form has been received by the Exam Office. Confirmation of fees will be available on this website once results have been issued and also provided within each candidates results pack. The  request form is also attached below. It will not be possible to process any remark request for a candidate until they have provided their full written consent as it needs to be accepted that the grade can move both up and down following a remark. Advice will be readily available to assess any risk of a negative impact to the overall grade.
