29 January 2019
A reminder to members about the earlier start this year to GCSE and A level external exams, and about the exam contingency day:
GCE/GCSE exams will begin on Monday 13 May 2019
Final GCSE exam will take place on Thursday 20 June 2019
Final GCE exam will take place on Tuesday 25 June 2019
Contingency day for GCSE/GCE exams (should sustained national or local disruption arise during June exams) will be on Wednesday 26 June 2019
JCQ has informed us that the contingency day of 26 June has been added to the timetable for 2019 and there is a possibility that if there is a crisis, that day may be used for an exam. As such, schools, colleges and students need to be aware that the timetable could change, and students can be expected to sit an exam on any day over the exam period.
