Examination Information (Absent, Resits, Results, Certificates)

Information Evenings

Absent from Exams

Pupils are required to attend all of their examinations and ensure that they arrive on time. If there is any reason why they are unable to attend the examination please contact the school immediately. If a pupil fails to attend an examination for no reason then you will be charged the entry fee of that examination. This includes family holidays, weddings or personal arrangements i.e. medical appointments. However, if they are missed due to being unwell, a doctor’s note is required by the Exam Boards. The Exam Boards may accept other serious exceptional circumstances beyond the control of the candidate, provided evidence is given.

Contingency Day

The last exam is dated 12th June, though all pupils must be available on 24th June which is a contingency date set aside by the Exam Board.

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have announced a contingency day for the summer exams series 2019. The date that has been set aside as the ‘contingency day’ is WEDNESDAY 24TH JUNE 2020.

The contingency day for ALL external examinations has been put in place “in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examination during the Summer 2020 examination series”.

Therefore, in the event of a major disruption, JCQ and/or the relevant Awarding Bodies may decide to postpone an exam to another date in the summer exam series. This means that any students sitting external examinations in summer 2020 must be available until Wednesday 24th June to sit any exams that had to be postponed.

Collecting Results

Information about collecting results for Summer 2019 - Click Here

If students are unable to collect their results on results day and would prefer to have their results emailed they need to collect a form from the Examinations Office.

Alternatively, the student can arrange for a representative to collect their results for them. Students must inform the Examinations Office prior to results day.  The representative must have photographic ID.

Candidate Results form or a copy of the form can be collected from the Examinations Office.

If you need to collect exam certifcates, please ensure you contact the school first to arrange a suitable date and time.  Contact - to arrange a date to collect

If you are unable to collect your own certificates, a family member can collect on your behalf.  They require written consent and photographic ID when they collect. The school does not post certificates.

Please ensure you do not lose your certificates as they can be expensive to replace, around £45 per certificate.  If you do lose them you will need to contact the exam boards directly to organise replacements. 


Think you have lost your certificates and need replacements?

If you have already collected your certificates and have lost them you can contact the exam boards and they may be able to replace them for you.  This depends on how long it is since you have sat the exam, however please check their websites for full information.

In some cases, exam boards have changed their names and merged so the govenment has issued information to help you check which board to contact for a replacement certificate or certified statement of results if your old board no longer exists.
