Exams JCQ Contingency Day -Wednesday 24 June 2020
I am writing to make sure you are aware that a national contingency day for GCSE and/or GCE/BTEC exams has been set for the summer 2020 exams. The contingency date has been arranged for 'GCSE and/or GCE/BTEC examinations, should sustained national or local disruption arise during the summer 2020 examination series'.
The date that has been set aside as the contingency day is Wednesday 24 June 2020. We are unable to predict whether or not students will be required to sit an exam on this date, however, it is clear that this date will be used should any exam need to be rearranged by any of the national exam boards.
Students will receive their final exam timetables in the spring term, the contingency exam date which has been arranged by the exam boards will not show on student's individual timetables, but does apply to all students. Students must be available to sit a GCSE and/or GCE/BTEC exam on and up to this date should the need arise.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Mr S Riley
