GCSE & A Level Contingency Date

GCSE and A Level Exams 2019 Contingency Date


Please note that the Joint Council for Qualifications have announced a contingency date.
A contingency date is a day specifically set aside, should sustained national or local disruption arise during the June 2019 examination series. If disruption happens, the GCSE and/or GCE (A Level) examinations would be taken either for the first time or again on that day.
The decision comes following the tragic events of last summer, namely the Manchester attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire. The Joint Council for Qualifications have decided that they need the option to postpone an exam in the event of an incident and rearrange for a later date to allow all students a fair and equal chance.

The contingency date for 2019 isĀ 26th June.


This means that all exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the date of their first exam until Wednesday 26 June 2019. This decision is not a school decision and does apply to all candidates in all schools.

Please can all students/parents/carers make a note of the new contingency exam date in the event that an awarding body needs to invoke its contingency plan.

The GCSE & A Level timetables are available on the website. Students will be receiving their statement of entries for their summer 2019 exams before half-term.
