Exam Information

Information / Exam information 2018/19

It is an important time for Year 11. As they approach their final exams it is important they are feel prepared and informed. In this section we have included the timetable for the final Summer exams (provisional) to support them in their revision preparations. 

It is important in order to be successful that the student understand how they will be assessed and on what. For each of their subjects their teachers will be following a set specification and syllabus. These are open and available for everyone to access.

Not only do they show these on their website but they also allow you to access past exam papers, mark schemes and examiners reports to highlight the common areas made by students. These provide invaluable opportunities for students to assess their understanding.

Obviously with different exam boards available for each subject it is likely that your son or daughter will be studying a range across their subjects. To help you navigate your way round we thought it would be useful to create direct links to the subject specific exam boards and their syllabus.

Exam Results 2019


There are two ways of collecting your exam results:

  1. You (or your representative) may come into school on “Results Day” between 9.45am and 12.00pm to collect your results. If someone is collecting on your behalf they must bring a letter signed by you giving them permission to obtain them.

  2. If you cannot collect them on the day we can post them to you, but you must leave a stamped self-addressed envelope with the Examinations Office before you leave school after your last exam in June.

    GCSE Exam Results are published on Thursday 22nd August 2019

    Post Results Requests

    If you have a concern about a grade in any particular subject you should approach the curriculum leader to discuss your result.

    The examination boards provide a limited time opportunity to enquire about the results of exams called a review of marking. This is a review of the original marking of the paper by a second examiner to ensure that it is free from error and represents a reasonable exercise in academic judgement. If you wish to make a request for a review of marking please submit the form that you will receive on results day to school including the correct amount in cash or cheque (made out to Saddleworth School).

    There is a deadline of 18th September for exam boards receive requests. A review of marking may take up to five weeks to be resolved. You should also bear in mind when a review of marking is requested that mark can go down as well as up or staying the same.

    Collecting Exam Certificates

    Certificates will be presented during Presentation Evening in November 2019. Details will be included in a letter that you receive when you pick up your results in August.

     

    If you are unable to attend the Presentation Evening you may collect your certificates in person from the school from the following Monday. If you are unable to collect them you may ask someone else (a member of your family for example) to pick them up on your behalf. If this is the case they must bring a letter signed by you giving them permission to obtain them and some form of photo ID.

    Saddleworth School has a policy of retaining any uncollected certificates until the original recipient or their representative picks them up.
