Examinations

Our excellent reputation with the Awarding Bodies is maintained by our strict adherence to assessment processes and procedures.

Specific arrangements for students with individual needs can be put in place to ensure they can access an assessment. This will give them a level playing field in which to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding.

 

Student - Post Exam Guidance

 

There will be a “Results Letter” in the "Documents" feature which will show the results.

Results Letter in Documents

Printed copies of the results will be posted out to the home address on Thursday 20th August, and therefore should arrive a day to two later.

Please inform school if you have recently moved address so that this can be updated before results day.

If you have any queries about exams, results day, or accessing your Edulink account, please email: exams@hindehouse.net


Centre Assessed Grades (CAG)

On 18 March 2020, the Secretary of State for Education announced that the summer 2020 GCSE, examination series would be cancelled in order to help fight the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and that students due to sit the examinations would be awarded a Centre Assessed Grade based on an assessment of the grade they would have been most likely to achieve had the examinations gone ahead.

See our Guide for Parents here

The Government guidance on the summer 2020 examination series can be accessed using the link below and answers to some frequently asked questions are also provided to help students, parents and carers understand how this will affect them:
