External Examinations

In addition to the external exams, there are a number of GCSE subjects whose students are required to undertake controlled assessments in the classroom, under ‘formal’ or ‘less formal’ conditions, as directed by the exam boards.

These tests are set on specific dates and times in the months prior to the main summer exams and attendance is essential if you are to successfully complete and receive an award for the subject concerned. You will be notified of the dates and times of these assessments by your subject teacher in due course.

Further information is available below on sitting controlled assessments. There is also information available on the rules relating to coursework and on-screen tests.
