*Public exam contingency day summer 2020 – This contingency day for GCSE and/or A Level (or equivalent) examinations has been put in place ‘in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations during the June 2020 examination series.’ The Joint Council for Qualifications have decided that they need the option to postpone an exam in the event of an incident and rearrange for a later date to allow all students a fair and equal chance.

The contingency day might not be used, but there is a possibility that if there is a need, that day may be used for an exam.

This decision is not a UTC decision and applies to all candidates in all schools.
