Exam Contingency Day
The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have announced a contingency day for the summer exams series 2019. The date that has been set aside as the ‘contingency day’ is WEDNESDAY 26TH JUNE 2019. The contingency day for ALL external examinations has been put in place “in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examination during the June 2019 examination series".
Therefore, in the event of a major disruption, JCQ and/or the relevant Awarding Bodies may decide to postpone an exam to another date in the June 2019 exam series. This means that any students sitting external examinations in June 2019 must be available until Wednesday 26th June to sit any exams that had to be postponed.
