Contingency day Summer 2020

'The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 24th June 2020 as a "contingency day" for examinations.

The designation of a "contingency day" within the common examination timetable is in the event of national or local disruption to examinations. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations.

Centres must therefore remind candidates that they must remain available until Wednesday 24th June 2020 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.'  

See downloads below for candidate information from the JCQ regarding written and non-assessed examinations.


UPDATE: Coronavirus outbreak

In response to the current Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, we would like to reassure you that we are monitoring the situation extremely closely. Ofqual have issued a brief statement and updated their guidance, saying:

"We are working closely with awarding organisations and the Department for Education to consider how to manage any particular risks to the smooth running of exams and assessments should there be a widespread outbreak of coronavirus.

We will update our existing guidance to reflect any specific arrangements schools and colleges should put in place if required".

The DfE have also opened a Coronavirus helpline, for centres, parents and students: 0800 046 8687

Please note all internal NEA and coursework deadlines remain as scheduled. We will keep you appraised of any changes to this following further communication from the DfE.
