It is the aim of Farmor’s School to make the examination experience as stress-free and successful as possible for all candidates.
Exam guidance for Students and Parents Issued in Y10 (2012-2013)
Summer External Examination Dates 2013 (7th May - 26th June 2013)
The awarding bodies (exam boards) have strict rules which must be followed for the conduct of exams and Farmor’s school is required to follow them precisely.
Ofqual’s announcement in November 2012 confirmed two main changes for GCEs, with further changes likely to be introduced in the future. The first key change is that from September 2013 there will be no exams in January. The second of the changes means that from September 2013, students will only have one re-sit opportunity.
