Phase 3 and 4 Information for Students and Parents/Guardians regarding Exams.

It is the aim of PSCA to make the examination experience as successful and stress-free as possible for all candidates and their parents/guardians.

We have created a handbook for students and parents. Please read it carefully so that you are aware of the examination regulations and the procedures to follow in the event of any problems occurring.

We are currently registered with the following Exam Boards (or Awarding Bodies) for our GCSE and Vocational Qualifications:

The Exam Boards set down strict criteria which must be followed for the conduct of examinations and PSCA is required to follow them precisely.  You should therefore, pay particular attention to the JCQ documents which contain important information for candidates and can be found below – all candidates must read these documents.

As part of our Vocational courses (BTEC and UAL), we offer a separate handbook for guidance to candidates and how parents and teacher’s will support them.

Illness and Absence From Examinations

Should any student be unable to attend an examination because of illness or emergency it is vital that parents inform the School as soon as possible.

All absences from examinations for medical reasons must be supported by a Medical Certificate obtained from your doctor., within 5 days of the illness. Without such proof of illness, the examination authorities can refuse to give any special consideration.

If a delay occurs on the way to an examination which means that a student may miss the start time of an exam, please inform the school as soon as possible and students must continue to come into school and report to reception upon arrival.
