Exam dates - latest information

On the 12th October, the Government announced the summer exam series will start on 7 June and end on 2 July for GCSEs.  There will be one English and one Maths GCSE exam in May, just before the Summer half term break.

It was announced today (3rd December 2020) that extra measures to "boost fairness and support students" will be used for next summer's GCSE and A-level exams in England, ministers have announced.

The measures mean:

  • more generous grading than usual, in line with results from summer 2020, so that this year's cohort is not disadvantaged
  • students getting advance notice - at the end of January - of some topic areas covered in exams to focus revision
  • exam aids - such as formula sheets - provided in some exams to cut down on the memorising required
  • additional "backup" exams - to be held in July - to give students a second chance to sit a paper if they have to miss main exams or assessments due to illness or self-isolation
  • and a new expert group, which will monitor variation in the impact of the pandemic on students across the country.

Results day is Friday 27 August for GCSEs so students will start the following academic year as normal.
