Student and parent guide to examinations

All External examination entries will be made on a student’s behalf by the school.  External examinations are taken in May or June, as scheduled by the Examination Boards. 

When a whole class is scheduled to take an exam or exams, the School pays the fees.  When a whole class is to take an exam unit, the entries are organised by the class teacher.

Exam results are normally published in mid August.

Students wishing to contest the marks received are strongly advised to act quickly by first paying for a photocopy of their answer paper (so they can consult teaching staff) and then submitting a request for a check or re-mark.  There are tight deadlines set for these stages, published annually by the exam boards which the Exams Office will also publicise.  These services do require fees to be paid and student signatures, as marks can go down as well as up.

Exam Boards will not accept late requests; nor will they accept private requests – they must be made through school.

Year 13 students are strongly advised not to plan holidays on and just after the date of exam results in the summer as they may need to act fast and to be available to make decisions and sign requests.

Students should never plan to need to re-sit exams.  Should these be necessary, they will be at a student’s own expense and can cost a considerable sum.  Additionally, the Universities will automatically be informed of the fact that a student did re-sits, and may refuse to make an offer to a student who required re-sits to achieve the desired grades.

If students wish to re-sit a unit, they must take the responsibility for themselves by asking for the appropriate form through the exams office, and paying the necessary additional administration fees.

For further information, please contact Mrs Magnusson either by telephone 01202 512609 or by email smagnusson@bournemouth-school.org
