Year 11 Important Exam Information Summer 2022

Summer Exam Series 2022 – Year 11

Dear Parent/ Carer

Following the government announcement on Monday 7th February we can now confirm that the summer examination series will go ahead as planned. The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have confirmed the alterations that they will be making as a result of government guidance (see below link)

https://www.jcq.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Advance-Information-for-General-Qualifications-2021-22.pdf.

In order to make the process as straightforward as possible we have put together a summary document. This clarifies what teachers and students are expected to do and know in preparation for their examinations. In the attached document there are links to each individual subject’s exam board modifications. Teachers will give students copies of these and will discuss changes with them when they return after half term (Please see attached additional information document – Parent Guide GCSE Ofqual Summary).

Most students have now successfully completed their trial examinations and have worked really hard to attain the best results possible. We have introduced an extensive rewards programme which is linked to individual student progress against target. This will culminate in a prize draw on Thursday March 18th as we release progress reports to students and parents.

Next half term:

  • Examination entries confirmed and examination timetables released to students.
  • Spring Term 2 revision programme will begin (planned face to face – Covid permitting)
  • Invitations to Easter Catch Up programme to be issued which will be in the first week of the Easter break (April 4th – 8th)

Advanced notification:

  • Summer exam results for GCSE released on Thursday 25th August 2022.

We thank you for your continued support and will update you further where necessary.

Best regards                                                                                                                                              Mr M McGeown
