Exams Information Summer 2022

On this page you will find information relating to trial and end of year exam windows, and dates for official summer 2022 exams for students in years 11-13. Please note that in some subjects additional assessments may take place throughout the academic year – students will be informed of these dates by subject teachers. Occasionally exam boards change their published exam dates - our documents were uploaded on 15th November 2021.

The Joint Council of Qualifications (JCQ) have stated that for this academic year Wednesday 29th June 2022 has been designated by the Exam Boards as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations.

This contingency day may be used if there is any disruption to a day of examinations. In this case examinations may be rescheduled to this contingency day. Therefore, students need to make sure they are available on that day and should not be away / on holiday on Wednesday 29th June.

The JCQ go on to say, if students are not available because they are on holiday and one of their exams is rescheduled to this day, they will not eligible for special consideration by the exam boards. For this reason, the JCQ request all schools inform parents and students of this date so that it can be taken into account when making plans for the summer.

As a school, we hope that the use of the contingency day will not be necessary. However, we feel duty bound to pass on the JCQ information and request that students be available on 29th June, in case it is required.
