Examination Dates

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 11th May 2020.  Individual examination timetables will be issued to all students well in advance of this date.

A ‘contingency day’ of Wednesday 24th June 2020 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 24th June 2020.

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 2019/2020.
