GCSE Exam Period

Posted on: February 14th, 2019 by Rob Martlew

GCSE Exam Period Contingency Period

The summer written exam period will run from Monday 13 May to Tuesday 25 June 2019. However for the summer 2019 exam series a “contingency” period has been set by the examination awarding bodies. This contingency period for GCSE and/or A Level (or equivalent) examinations has been put in place “in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations”. The decision comes following the tragic events of last summer, namely the Manchester attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire. The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have decided that they need the option to postpone an exam (or exams) in the event of an incident and rearrange them for a later date to allow all students a fair and equal chance. The contingency period lasts until Wednesday 26 June 2019. This means that all exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the date of their first exam up to and including Wednesday 26 June 2019. This is not a school/college decision and applies to all candidates in all schools.
