Welcome to the Exams Office
Information for Candidates
GCSE examinations can be a very daunting and stressful time for our students. We want to ensure that they feel as supported as possible during this period, so that they can achieve their highest potential and go on to have wonderful successes in the future.
This page contains useful information and tips to support students through their exams.
- Be prompt! Morning examinations start at 9.00am and afternoon examinations start at 1.30pm.
- You MUST arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of the examination.
- If you arrive after 9.30am for a morning examination or after 2.00pm for an afternoon examination it is very unlikely that the awarding body will mark your paper.
If you will be unable to collect your certificates in person, please provide a stamped, self-addressed envelope to reception prior to the end of the summer term.
Wishing to collect certificates from 2021 or earlier?
Please contact the School on 01709 850741 or by e-mail at email@example.com to arrange collection. Certificates will be ready to collect from Reception within 48 hours. Please bring ID with you or send a letter of authorisation with the person who is collecting on your behalf.
Please note: Certificates will not be issued to a 3rd party without your written permission (no text messages).
Replacement Exam Certificates
If you have lost your original certificates, you may apply for a certifying statement of results, which is an official copy of the final exam results held by the awarding exam bodies. It is accepted by universities, colleges and employers as verification of results.
Depending on which examinations you took, you may need to contact each exam board. Below are links to the main exam board websites which will give you the information required to obtain replacement certificates and/or confirmation of results.
