Individual student examination timetables will be issued to all students taking external examinations as soon as they are confirmed, and copies will also be posted home to all parents.
The timetables will specify the following information:
●Student exam number,
●Examination tier (if applicable),
●Date and time of examinations,
●Examination seating number,
Students must check that all personal details are correct on their examination timetable, including the correct spelling of names and the correct date of birth, as these are the details which will appear on the final certificates.
It is easier to rectify mistakes at this stage, rather than after final certificates have been printed.
All certificates for examinations achieved are sent directly to the school. Certificates achieved by students up to and during Year 11 are held securely until those students’ Key Stage 4 studies are completed. All certificates will then be available to students in the January following the completion of Year 11. However if students do not wish to leave their certificates in our safekeeping, collection can be requested beforehand from the Examinations Office.
Students who have returned to Sixth Form will therefore be advised when the certificates are ready, and a time will be arranged for students to check and sign for their certificates. Students who have left school will need to come back into the school in person, to collect and sign for their certificates. If someone else is collecting certificates for an ex-student, they will need written authority from that ex-student to do this.
Once certificates have been collected, replacement certificates for any subsequently lost or misplaced can usually be requested from the relevant exam board but, due to Data Protection, this must be done directly by the student, and each exam board will normally charge a fee for this service.
Regulations for the conduct of examinations and assessment, relating to all the main awarding bodies, are overseen by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ).
