Examination Dates and Timetables

Public examinations take place in May and June.  Public examination dates are set by the Examination Boards and therefore these dates and times cannot be altered by Aldridge School.

GCSE and GCE examinations will begin on Monday 16th May 2022.

Individual examination timetables will be issued to all students well in advance of this date, 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.

A ‘contingency day’ of Wednesday 29th June 2022 has been scheduled by all awarding bodies in the unlikely event that there is a national disruption to a day of examinations.

All exam candidates must be available to sit examinations up to and including Wednesday 29th June 2022.

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

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 2021/2022.
