Exams


This area provides all the information that you will need to help you be prepared for your GCSE/GCE exams at Blue Coat School.

Please note that due to COVID-19, many dates and details for 2021 exam seasons have not yet been announced. As information is finalised we will update this page.

 

Autumn Exam Season

A Level results will be emailed to students on Thursday 17th December 2020, from 10am onwards.

GCSE Maths and GCSE English Language results will be emailed to students on Thursday 14th January 2021, from 10am onwards.

All other GCSE results will be emailed to students on Thursday 11th February 2021, from 10am onwards.

Information regarding post results services available, deadlines and costs will be emailed to students as soon as these have been finalised by the exam boards.


Summer 2021 Exam Season

Further to the announcement from the DfE earlier this week, these are now the current dates for exams that are due to be sat in Summer 2021.  Exact timetables have yet to be released by the exam boards.

  • Summer exam series will start on Monday 7th June 2021 and end on Friday 2nd July 2021 for almost all AS and A levels and GCSEs.
  • Results days will be Tuesday 24th August 2021 for A and AS levels and Friday 27thAugust 2021 for GCSEs.
  • One maths and one English GCSE exam will be held just before the May half-term, giving any year 11 pupils who are affected by COVID-19 the best possible chance of still sitting a paper in each of these core subjects.
  • It is expected that for the majority of vocational and technical qualifications that are taken alongside or instead of GCSEs, AS and A levels, exam boards will look to align timetables with 2021 exams.
