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 provided a stamped, self-addressed envelope (envelopes are only posted on results day, so will not be received until the day after)

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.

Enquiries about results (EARs)

EARs may be requested by centre staff or the candidate following the release of results. A request for a review of marking or clerical check requires the written consent of the candidate.  A request for a re-moderation of internally assessed work may be submitted without the consent of the group of candidates.

Candidates can make a request for an EAR and this will be paid for by the candidate.  The Exams Officer will process any review of marking request made by candidates; it is not the Exams Officer’s responsibility to decide whether or not a review of marking is advisable.

Notices to candidates

The Joint Council for Qualifications publishes Notices to Candidates on their website including important guidance on written exams, privacy and social media.
