Examination Dates

Public examinations take place in May and June.

GCSE and GCE examinations will begin on Wednesday 26th May 2021.

All candidates must be available to sit examinations up to and including Friday 2nd July 2021.

Aldridge School advise that any holidays are planned after this date. Where candidates choose not to be available for the examination(s) they will not be eligible for enhanced grading arrangements.

Public examination dates are set by the Examination Boards and therefore these dates and times cannot be altered by Aldridge School.

Individual examination timetables will be issued to all students well in advance of the first examination, which details dates, times, duration of exams, venues and seat numbers. Students need to check this carefully. If students have any concerns about their timetable they need to come to the Exams Office immediately.

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) governs all public examinations for the awarding bodies and there are strict rules and guidelines that all candidates must adhere to.

Please find below the JCQ Information for candidates for 2020/2021.
