It is the aim of The Holy Family Catholic School to make the examination experience as successful and stressfree as possible to all our candidates.
The awarding bodies (our examination boards) set down strict criteria which must be followed for the conduct of examinations and the Holy family Catholic School is required to follow them precisely. candidates are advised to pay particular attention to the JCQ Warning to Candidates and JCQ Notice to Candidates as well as any information supplied regarding controlled assessments. the JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) has information for students on their website: www.jcq.org.uk.
If you have any queries or need help or advice at any time before, during or after the examinations please contact:

Contingency Exam Day
For the Summer 2020 exam series, a “contingency” exam day has been arranged by the examination awarding bodies which all students need to be aware of.
This contingency day for GCSE and/or A-Level (or equivalent) examinations has been put in place “in the event of a widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examinations during the June 2020 examination series.” The decision comes following the tragic events of last summer, namely the Manchester attacks and the Grenfell Tower fire.
The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have decided that they need the option to postpone an exam (or exams) in the event of an incident and rearrange them for a later date to allow all students a fair and equal chance. The date that has been set aside as the contingency day is Wednesday 24 June 2020.
This means that all exam candidates must be available to sit exams from the date of their first exam until Wednesday 24 June 2020. This decision is not a school decision and does apply to all candidates in all schools.
