Important Information Regarding Summer 2019 Public Examinations

Contingency Date - Wednesday 26 June 2019

May I draw your attention to important information regarding the dates for next year’s GCSE and A Level examinations: the Joint Council for Qualifications have announced a Contingency Date.

A Contingency Date is a day specifically set aside for students to sit public examinations, should sustained national or local disruption arise during the examination series which prevents an examination taking place on the timetabled date. In the event that an examination could not take place on the timetabled date, the GCSE and/or GCE (A Level) examinations would be taken, either for the first time, or again, on the Contingency Date. The Contingency Date for Summer 2019 is Wednesday 26 June 2019.

Therefore, students taking public examinations in 2019 should not book a holiday, or plan to be any distance from school, before Thursday 27 June 2019
