  • Summer 2023 contingency dates

    The awarding bodies have collectively agreed a contingency day for several years
    now which is always scheduled at the end of the GCSE and A level exam timetables.

    The contingency day is in the event of national or significant local disruption to exams in the United Kingdom, being part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for exams.

    Following the COVID-19 pandemic, further resilience was needed within the exam
    timetables. A single contingency day was not felt to be sufficient if a national event or incident had a significant effect on the exam timetable. For example, summer exams could be affected by extremely high temperatures.

    For the June 2023 exams, the awarding bodies have therefore introduced two
    additional half-day contingency sessions. These are on Thursday 8 June 2023 and
    Thursday 15 June 2023. The standard contingency day remains at the end of the
    timetable being scheduled on Wednesday 28 June 2023.

    You must consider the contingency day of Wednesday 28 June 2023 when making
    your plans for the summer. Candidates must remain available until Wednesday 28
    June 2023 should examinations need to be rescheduled.
