Autumn GCSE examination entries

As you will be aware, the Government U-turn, regarding centre-assessed grades removed any opportunity to appeal the final grades received by students, unless admin failings are identified in the process of submission of these grades. There is, however, an Autumn series of examinations available for those students hoping to improve their grades. These examinations will begin Monday 2 November and be concluded by Monday 23 November. Papers for the core subjects of English language and mathematics take place on the dates specified below:

  • English language paper 1 Monday 2 November – morning session
  • English language paper 2 Wednesday 4 November – morning session
  • Mathematics paper 1 Tuesday 3 November – morning session
  • Mathematics paper 2 Thursday 5 November – morning session
  • Mathematics paper 3 Monday 9 November – morning session
