Important Exam Information
For the first time a contingency day has been arranged for “GCSE and/or GCE examinations, should sustained national or local disruption arise during the June 2019 examination series”.
The decision comes following the tragic events of last summer, namely the Manchester attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire. The Joint Council for Qualifications have decided that they need the option to postpone an exam in the event of an incident and re-arrange for a later date to allow all students an equal and fair chance.
In 2019 the contingency day is Wednesday 26 June 2019. This means that all exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the start of the exams in May until Wednesday 26 June 2019. This is not a school decision and does apply to all candidates in all schools, sitting any exam board. This day will be added to all student timetables
