Examination Information

Examinations are an important part of school life throughout a student’s time at the Maynard. This may take the form of external A-level or GCSE examinations or internal end of year assessments.

It is important that the strict rules for the conduct of all external examinations are followed by each student and that both parents and students have information about the policies and procedures that are in place surrounding these examinations. JCQ, the Body that governs exam policy and procedure, issues information and guidance each year for students, which should be read carefully. The Examinations Officer will discuss the rules and what happens if they are broken in a dedicated assembly, but all relevant information is contained here for your information.  Students will also receive a booklet outlining key exam information.

(Information from JCQ: ‘’The 2019 timetable has a new feature – a contingency day on 26 June 2019.  This will be used if a significant, unexpected event arises nationally or locally during the exam period such that no students (or a large number of them) are able to take an exam when planned. Of course, we all hope there won’t be such disruption and that the contingency day won’t be needed. But students should be available throughout the whole exam period, including on that day, in case their planned timetable is disrupted.  You might want to add 26 June 2019 to your students’ exam timetables to make sure they all save the date and don’t make other commitments that could mean they are unavailable, just in case…..’’)
