Harris Academies
All Academies in our Federation aim to transform the lives of the students they serve by bringing about rapid improvement in examination results, personal development and aspiration.

Exam Expectations

See below the Academy's and JCQ's expectations regarding exams

 

School Uniform

All students, including Year 11 students, MUST wear full school uniform when attending school for revision classes and examinations.

Any students who come to school not in uniform will be asked to go home and change. They will not be allowed on school premises.

 


Exams Equipment

Students must make sure they are properly equipped for every exam.

You should bring two black ball-pens, a pencil, eraser, sharpener and any other writing or Mathematics equipment needed to your exams.

Check with your teacher if you think you will need any specialist equipment.


Awarding Bodies

The main four awarding bodies we use for GCSE and A Level exams are AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC. You can get useful information on the exams process from their websites and all will allow you to download free copies of past exam papers.

Their websites are:

Click on the links above to go directly to the Students and Parents sections.

Past Papers

When looking for past papers you should be aware that the awarding bodies refer to A Level papers as GCE - do not confuse this with GCSE which are the exams students do in Year 10 and 11. You may need to search within different GCSE date categories to find the subject you are looking for. Every subject has a course code and each paper has a component code - you will find it helpful to have this code to help you identify the correct exam papers. You will find it on your child's exam timetable under Component.


Ofqual Exams Information

OFQUAL is the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation.

Their website contains useful information for students and parents/carers on the exams process at www.ofqual.gov.uk

In particular you may find the following links useful:


Exam Regulations

There are very strict rules about public exams which are enforced by the awarding bodies. You can  download copies of the notices via the links below.
