Exam Information - GCSE

The official dates for 2019 GCSEs:
May 13th 2019 - June 26th 2019

Students at St Clere’s are offered GCSE qualifications from four Exam Boards: OCREdexcelAQA and WJEC. These sites have information about exam dates, past papers and revision tips.

The GCSE Statement of Results for 2019 will be announced nearer the time. 

If you break the rules and regulations set by the Exam Board, they can refuse to accept your paper and possibly disqualify you from future papers.  Rule-breaking includes cheating, being in possession of a mobile phone (even if switched off) and being disruptive or disrespectful.

All exams will be sat annually in May and June. These will be preceded by Mock Exams, sat under exam conditions, and intended to give both the students and their tutors a guide to the students’ readiness and appropriate level.

The bulk of exams are sat at the end of Year 11 and all exams will follow at least two years of instruction in that subject.  Which exam and which level each student will sit will be decided by their tutor and the Head of Department.

Mock GCSE exams for year 11 will take place on the following dates. Timetables will be published nearer the time.

15th-19th October 2018: mock English GCSE

3rd-19th December 2018: mock GCSEs in all subjects

25th February - 2st March 2019  Y11 mock English and maths GCSE

23rd April 2019 GCSE English walk-through

The 24th June is the JCQ emergency/contingency day. This day will be used if there are any changes to the published exam date calendar and therefore will need to be included for all pupils.
