Any water bottle brought to an exam must be clear/transparent and cannot have writing on it and pencil cases must be see-through.

All cases of Special Consideration must be forwarded to the Examinations Officer within 7 days of the last exam in any exam season.

Exam Contingency Days:

Exam boards set contingency dates each year just in case a scheduled exam is moved to another day, due to an unforeseen national or local disruption.

  • Thursday 8th June 2023 – PM only
  • Thursday 15th June 2023 – PM only
  • Wednesday 28th June 2023 – all day

Candidates must remain available on these dates should the exam board invoke their contingency plan.

Exams can be moved for many reasons, so it is very important that you look for messages from your Examinations Officer, prior to and during the exam season.

Exam boards make the final decision with regards to whether special consideration is granted if a candidate is absent from an exam on a contingency day, so it is very important that candidates make every effort to remain available on these days.
