After the success of the summer exams in 2023 we are delighted to share the information below about the GCSE (11) and GCE (12/13) exams in 2024. The information below includes key dates and information that you can use to ensure you know exactly what to expect in summer 2024.
Summer Public Examination Dates: 09 May – 26 June 2024
All students must remain available until the 26th June in case an awarding body needs to invoke its contingency plan. There are 3 contingency dates in place for 2024 - these contingencies are in place in the event of national or significant local disruption to examinations in the United Kingdom:
06 June - afternoon
13 June - afternoon
26 June - all day
Please note: if an exam is rescheduled for one of the contingency dates and
the student is not available to attend (i.e. due to a holiday) they will not be eligible for special consideration by the exam boards.
All students receive an individual examination timetable - this will include a chronological list of their exams (based on the subjects they study) as well as the locations of and specific seats for each of their exams. It is vital that students keep these safe and refer to them each day during the exams window so they do not miss any exams. If you have any questions or queries relating to exam timetables please contact the school exams officer: Mick Hartley (email@example.com) or the school office on 0191 297 9700.

Post Results Services
If you are unhappy with any of your exam grades you can use exam board post results services.
Depending on the exam board there are generally three services available;
1. Access to scripts - this allows you to access your marked script from your exam(s).
2. Clerical re-check - this is where the exam board will check that all aspects of the paper have been
marked, marks are recorded/added up correctly, special consideration (if applicable) has been applied
and that grade boundaries have been applied accurately.
3. Review of marking - this service involves a senior examiner reviewing the marking of a specific unit/component within a subject area.
*Please note - fees for these services vary depending on exam board. Fees can be found on the exam board websites using the links below.
