Exam Contingency Days Summer 2024

Exam Contingency Days Summer 2024

The awarding bodies have collectively agreed a contingency day for several years now which is always scheduled at the end of the GCSE, GCE AS and A-level exam timetables.

The contingency day is in the event of national or significant local disruption to exams in the United Kingdom, being part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for exams.

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, further resilience was needed within the exam timetables. A single contingency day was not felt to be sufficient if a national event or incident had a significant effect on the exam timetable.

For the June 2024 exams the contingency sessions will be:

Thursday 6th June – half day session
Thursday 13th June – half day session
Wednesday 26th June – full day session

Students should remain available until Wednesday 26th June 2024 should examinations need to be rescheduled.
