Update Re Exams in January and February 2022
The Department for Education (DfE) has clarified whether or not students are expected to wear face coverings in vocational exams, that are due to take place in January and February 2022:
“Following the temporary reintroduction of face coverings in classrooms, the public health guidance to support exams was updated on Sunday 2 January. This guidance sets out that we would not ordinarily expect candidates and invigilators to wear face coverings during exams and assessments, but only on arrival and departure. Both candidates and invigilators may wear face coverings if they wish to do so.”
The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 29th June 2022 as a Contingency Day for examinations. This is an additional day at the end of the exam period which will be used in the event of national or significant local disruption to the examinations. All examination candidates should ensure that they are available until 29th June 2022 should there be exceptional circumstances that require an awarding body to reschedule an examination.
It is the aim of Ravens Wood School to make the examination experience as stress-free and successful as possible for all candidates.
Hopefully, this section of the website will prove informative and helpful. Information on this page will relate to examination regulations and the procedures to follow as students prepare for examinations at Ravens Wood. A detailed information booklet is available here to explain the process in more detail. Please also refer to our Examinations Policies which can be found on our School Policies Page.
The Awarding Bodies (Examination Boards) set strict criteria which must be followed for the conduct of examinations and Ravens Wood School is required to follow these precisely. You should therefore, pay particular attention to the JCQ Information to Candidates, Controlled Assessments, Non-Examination Assessments and Coursework documents which can be found on the JCQ website.
