Exam Information

Students will sit public examinations in Years 10 and 11 typically at GCSE and possibly others such as BTEC, Cambridge Nationals, Cambridge Technicals. 

In most GCSE courses, students will complete NEAs, which are examined tasks completed during the course. These assessments are similar to coursework in many ways and give students an opportunity to show what they know about a certain topic or area of a given subject.

However, NEA is different from coursework by having controls which determine how and where students complete their assessments and what resources they may use. These controls mean that:

  • all students complete their assessments in the same way
  • assessments are fairer and more reliable
  • students get the marks they deserve.

We believe it is important for students to experience formal exams and at the end of each year students will sit end of year summative assessments to support them in consolidating their knowledge and understanding and applying this to exam style questions.

We provide support for students in developing revision skills and study skills to enable them to be confident preparing for exams and be successful.
