Autumn 2020 exam series

Students are reminded that there will be a full series of GCE A, AS and GCSE in all subjects available in autumn 2020 for anyone who is disappointed with their grades or for those, such as private candidates, who were unable to receive a calculated grade this summer. We really are hoping that students will be happy with their outcomes in the summer and that these will enable them to progress to their chosen pathways, but will obviously support students should they make the decision to take any exams in the autumn.  We are awaiting guidance from Ofqual, but if these exams carry an additional cost for schools, the cost of entries will be passed on to students, as we would usually do with exam re-takes.

The timetable will run as follows:

  • GCE AS/A-level examinations start on Monday 5 October and finish on Friday 23 October
  • GCSE examinations start on Monday 2 November and finish on Monday 23 November

Entry deadlines are as follows:

  • GCE AS/A-level examinations - 24 August
  • GCSE examinations (except English Language and Mathematics) - 7 September
  • GCSE (English Language and Mathematics) – 4 October
