Exam Contingency Day 2023

The awarding bodies have designated Thursday 8th June 2023 (PM), Thursday 15th June 2023 (PM) and Wednesday 28th June (AM & PM) as Contingency Days for examinations. These are additional days 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 28th June 2023 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.

If there are any queries at any time before, during or after the examinations please contact:
