Parents of students due to sit exams this summer sometimes contact the school for their children’s timetables, so that they can book flights and holidays. Exam boards have designated Wednesday 24 June 2020** as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. In the highly unlikely event that there is national disruption to a day of examinations in summer 2020, exam boards could reschedule to dates up to and including the contingency day on 24 June 2020.

Should this happen, the affected candidates will be expected to make themselves available.   Therefore, candidates and parents should take this into account when making their plans for the summer.

**This applies to all exams, except International Baccalaureate.  For International Baccalaureate, the contingency session is the afternoon of Friday 22 May 2020
