General advice

Please take some time to review the documents at the bottom of this page, under the “Exam Board Notices for all Students” heading. This outlines the guidance and restrictions which apply to all students nationally.

Data consent for Exams Access Arrangements

We require written consent from students to share data with the JCQ to process applications for Exams Access Arrangements. All Year 10 students are being asked to complete a consent form. This is to ensure everyone is treated in the same way and in case urgent applications are required for the summer GCSE exam period. Completed consent forms will be held by Inclusion and destroyed if they are not required. Applications for access arrangements will only be made following assessment by and consultation with Inclusion staff. The data consent form and privacy notice are available from the JCQ here.

Wellbeing during exams

Exams can be an extremely challenging and stressful time. If you are struggling to manage your mood or anxiety levels, don’t keep it to yourself.  Talk to someone – family, friends, your teachers and support staff. Have a look at our guide of stress-busting techniques and self-care recommendations.


Coursework/NEA (Non-Examined Assessment work)

If your subject involves coursework (also known as ‘NEA components’), you will have completed this in lesson time or scheduled controlled assessments already. This work is marked internally according to strict marking criteria and you will be provided with your mark by your teacher.

If you feel your mark is unfair, you may appeal it. In this case, the school will re-examine your work and the strict marking criteria. Following an appeal, your mark may increase but it may also decrease or remain the same.

If you wish to appeal, you will need to do so before a particular deadline. These deadlines vary for each subject. The exams team or any teacher can advise which deadline applies to a particular subject. To submit an appeal, please notify the Exams team as quickly as possible by email at or provide a letter to Mrs Luxton (Exams Officer) in F44.

You will be notified of the outcome of the appeal in writing before your mark is submitted to the exam board. Policies outlining the appeals process are below in the ‘Important Information’ section.
