Information for candidates

The Hereford Academy is an Approved Examination Centre. It is our responsibility to make sure that all examination candidates are made aware of the rules that need to be followed when completing assessments, coursework, on-screen tests and written examinations. It is very important that each candidate takes time to read all the attached information and if there are any questions please contact either your Form Tutor or Mrs D Rowan, the Examinations Officer (in F73).

 

Collection of GCSE Exam Certificates - 20th November 2018:

GCSE Exam Certificates for 2018 Year 11 leavers are available to collect from the Academy. On arrival please report to reception. Reception is open from 8.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Friday.

 

Update: 12th October 2018

Next year (2019), during Spring term, students will receive their individual exam timetables.  For the first time a contingency exam day has been arranged by the exam boards and will be added to each student’s timetable.  The contingency day has been arranged for GCSE and/or GCE examinations, should sustained national or local disruption arise during the Summer 2019 examination series.

This decision was made following the tragic events of last Summer, namely the Manchester attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire.  The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have decided that they need the option to postpone an exam in the event of an incident and re-arrange for a later date to allow all students an equal and fair chance.

The date that has been set aside as the contingency day is Wednesday 26th June 2019.  This means that ALL exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the start of the exams in May until Wednesday 26th June 2019.  This is not a school decision and it does apply to all candidates in all schools.

I would recommend to students that they inform their parent/carers that they must be available to sit examinations up to and including this date.  Holidays or other commitments for Year 11 students should not be booked until after Wednesday 26th June 2019.
