Exam Information

Welcome to the Exam's Office area

Within the Exam's Office area of this website we aim to provide students and parents with the tools and information which we hope will be both useful and informative. Application forms for exam re-sits, Access to Scripts (ATS) as well as Reviews of Results (RoRs) will be available and updated as each exam season changes. This page will also provide exam timetable dates for the next set of exams to be sat by our students as well as a list of key dates.

Summer 2020 - Covid 19

As previously announced in England only there will be a full series of GCE A, AS and GCSE in all subjects available in Autumn 2020.

The timetable will run as follows:

  • GCE AS and A-level examinations start on Monday 5 October and finish on Friday 23 October.
  • GCSE examinations start on Monday 2 November and finish on Monday 23 November.

The deadlines for entry are:

  • (GCE AS & A-level) – 4 September
  • GCSE (except English Language and Mathematics) – 18 September
  • GCSE (English Language and Mathematics) – 4 October.

The exam boards will post the timetables on their websites and contact centres about entries in due course.

Ofqual now have released details on the Appeals process for results awarded in Summer 2020. 

  1. You can ask your school or college to check whether it made an administrative error when submitting information to the exam board. Administrative errors might include, for example, mixing up 2 students with similar names, or accidentally copying across the wrong data, but do not relate to the professional judgements of centres in assigning CAGs. If your school or college finds it made a mistake in the information it provided it can ask the exam board to correct it.
  2. Your school or college can appeal to the exam board on your behalf if it believes the exam board made a mistake when it communicated your grades.
  3. You cannot challenge your school or college under the appeals process on the centre assessment grades it submitted or your rank order positions. Any appeal would have to be undertaken by someone better placed than your teachers to judge your likely grade if exams had taken place. In the unique circumstances of this summer, we do not believe there is such a person.
  4. You cannot appeal because your mock result was higher than the grade you were awarded. Your mock grade will have been taken into account in determining your centre assessment grade. You will either receive your centre assessment grade or your calculated grade (whichever is higher). 
Making a complaint about bias, discrimination, malpractice or maladministration

You cannot appeal because you disagree with the centre assessment grades or rank orders given by your school or college. However, you might be concerned that your centre assessment grades or your rank order positions were wrong because you believe the judgement was influenced by things other than evidence about your academic performance. 

If you believe you have a reason for appeal or wish to lodge a complaint, please contact Mrs Topham in the first instance at lisa.topham@kings.lincs.sch.uk.

This summer, your grade is protected, meaning that it will not go down to a lower grade as a result of an appeal to the examination boards. 
The deadline for appeals is 17 September 2020. 
Please see the below OFQUAL Guide for further details, attached at the bottom of this page.

COLLECTION OF  SUMMER 2020 EXAM CERTIFICATES

Certificates are normally available for collection from the middle of November.  Students who are no longer pupils at the school will be sent an email notifying them how they can obtain their certificates.  These will be issued through the School’s Reception Office.  Years 11 & 12 will be notified through the school system and can be collected from the Sixth Form Centre.

If you are unable to collect certificates in this way you may wish to have them collected on your behalf.  Please complete the Certificate collection form below.Please note we will not send them out via the post. 

On collection, you should carefully check that your personal information (name, date of birth, gender) is correct and that the correct final grade(s) issued to you is/are shown. You will be required to sign that you have collected your certificates and confirm they are correct. 

Please be aware that all uncollected certificates will normally be returned in accordance with JCQ rules to the exam boards 12 months after they have been issued.  Awarding bodies will charge for the re-issue of each certificate.
