Exam timetables

Individual exam timetables will be given to candidates in late February.  It is the responsibility of the student to let the Exams Officer know of any errors or omissions on their timetable.


Candidates will receive individual results slips on results days, either

  • in person at the centre or
  • given to another person provided written permission has been provided by the candidate to release the results and the named person brings in photographic evidence of their ID, or
  • by post to their home address where candidates have requested this (envelopes are only posted on results day, so will not be received until the day after), or
  • By email to the candidate’s school email address where candidates have requested this. Results will be sent by email after 1pm on results days.

The results slip will be in the form of a centre produced document.  Candidates will also receive information regarding the Enquiries about results services (EARs) offered by the exam boards.

Uncollected results slips will then be available for collection from the reception.
