CONTINGENCY EXAM DAY
For the summer 2020 exam series a ‘contingency’ exam day has been arranged by the examination awarding bodies which all students need to be aware of.

This contingency day for all examinations has been put in place “in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations during the June 2020 examination series”.

The decision comes following the tragic events of summer 2017, namely the Manchester attack and the Grenfell Tower fire. The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) 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 date that has been set aside as the contingency day is Wednesday 24 June 2020. This means that all exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the date of their first exam until Wednesday 24 June 2020. This decision is not a school decision and applies to all students in all schools. Please can all parents and carers make a note of the new contingency exam date, in the event that an awarding body needs to invoke its contingency plan.
