Exam Contingency Day 2020 – 24th June 2020

 Wednesday 24th June 2020 will be a ‘Contingency Day’ for all exam boards in the UK.  Students must ensure they remain available for GCSE and A-Level examinations until this time.

In line with Ofqual’s ‘exam system contingency plan’, this will be used if a significant, unexpected event arises nationally or locally during the exam period such that no students (or a large number of them) are able to take an exam when planned. Of course, we all hope there won’t be such disruption and that the contingency day won’t be needed. But students should be available throughout the exam period, including on that day, in case their planned timetable is disrupted.
