Exam Regulations

All of our GCSE, FCSE, BTEC, CIE and Cambridge National examinations and assessments are governed by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ). 

JCQ decides how to run exams and assessments so that they are secure and fair. JCQ also regulates the concessions that are allowed so that all pupils have an equitable chance to achieve their best grades. 

Every year JCQ inspects the school to ensure that we are keeping up to their standards so that we are allowed to hold examinations. 

Information for candidates is available from the JCQ website and covers the rules for all exams. 

If there are any exam rules or other exam issues that you are unsure about, pupils are welcome speak to the Exams Officer at break time, lunch or before or after school.

For more information, please visit the information for candidates section of the JCQ website.
