Public Examinations Joint Contingency Day
Saturday 20 June 2020, 08:00 - 16:30

For the Summer exam series a Joint Contingency examination day has been arranged by the Awarding Bodies. This contingency day 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 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 rearrange for a later date to allow all students a fair and equal chance. This means that all candidates must be available to sit examinations from the date of their first exam until the published contingency date.

This decision is not a school decision and does apply to all candidates in all schools.

All students/parents/carers are to make a note of the Contingency examination date in the event that an Awarding Body needs to invoke its Contingency Plan.
