At Kelvin Hall School, we work hard to prepare all of our pupils for their exams and help them to achieve their full potential.
In order for us to do this, pupils must also work hard and be aware of what is expected of them when they come to sit an exam.
This page sets out some of the upcoming exam dates and important information that pupils will need in order to succeed.
For more information about exams, please call Mrs Comez, Data & Examinations Manager, on (01482) 342229 or you can email at email@example.com
Mock Examinations 2021-2022
Year 10 students will be sitting their English Language mock exam in March 2022. This will be conducted in line with the official JCQ regulations. Click here to read a letter from the Head of School detailing the new regulations put in place this year.
Year 11 students are currently taking in-class mocks in a variety of subjects and will also be taking their English Literature, Maths and Science mocks in March 2022 in the main examination halls.

Dates can be accessed here for both Year 10 and Year 11.
Whole School End of Year Exams - Summer 2022
At the end of each academic year, we conduct a whole school end of year examination series. This year, the exams will take place from 21st June until 8th July and the appropriate timetable can be accessed here. This is for all students, from Year 7 to Year 10. These examinations enable students to demonstrate to their teachers the level of learning they have achieved over the last year.
The core subjects for Year 7-Year 9 will be held in the real examination hall, whilst other subjects will be done within their normal timetabled lessons. For Year 10, ALL subjects will be assessed within the examination hall.
As a school, we feel that it is good practice for all students to experience an exam setting as this prepares them for their future real examinations in Year 11. We expect all students to follow the same rules and regulations as they do in Year 11. These rules can be found here.
Examination Boards Advance Subject Information
To help students revise, the exam boards have published advance information about the focus of the exams for most subjects for GCSE.
Advance information is one part of the package of changes for 2022. For some qualifications, other changes have been introduced, such as optionality, changes to non-exam assessment (NEA) and fieldwork requirements, as well as providing equation sheets in exams.
You can access all available subject advance information here.

Useful Guides for Parents & Students
Please see attached guides produced by TheParentsGuide.co.uk which we think you may find helpful in the build up to the exam season.
Certificates generally become available to students in the November after they sit their exams in the Summer.
We will contact you nearer to the time to arrange collection of your certificates.
Your certificates are very valuable & should be kept safe at all times. If you lose them, you will be charged by the awarding bodies for replacements or statement of results, whichever the board provides. They do not all send replacement Certificates. You will be charged for each search you request to each of the Boards. Prices vary from board to board.
Please use the following link to apply for replacements: http://ofqual.gov.uk/help-and-advice/getting-a-replacement-certificate/
KEEP CERTIFICATES SAFE
Years 9, 10 and 11 are the most important...
Years 9, 10 and 11 are the most important years of your academic development and lay the foundation for your future career and aspirations. Please, don’t waste this important stage of your development.
Embrace the challenge, be attentive in class, prepare coursework correctly, revise your studies appropriately and sit your examinations with confidence.
There is nothing like the feeling of having achieved and being able to move forward with your life plans. Hopefully when it comes to your GCSE exam results day you will be one of the many pupils who is inspired and filled with pride after receiving the results that you truly deserve.
