Summer Exam Timetable

The summer examination season kicks off in earnest the week beginning the 14th May 2018, with examinations in GCSE Computer Science, GCSE French, GCSE Science, A-Level Maths, BTEC Creative Media and GCSE Drama.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish your son/daughter the very best of luck in his/her exams, and to offer you our assurances that we will be doing everything in our power to ensure the smooth facilitation of the summer 2018 season.

You have been sent a copy of your child’s exam timetable for the summer season, accompanying “Information for Exam Candidates” leaflet, and a publication from the Joint Council for Qualifications that details exam rules. Please do take the time to read this and go through the details with your child.

For quick reference below we have published an overview of which exams and external assessments will be happening at BOA on each day.

Following the May half-term break (28th May – 1st June) your child’s teachers will be continue to be available to assist with revision and preparation during the normal lesson times. Every year we encourage students to consider attending BOA during the run up to their exams as this is an opportunity to revise in a conducive environment with expert help on hand.

Year 13 students are required to continue to attend pathway lessons around their examinations until they have been signed off by a member of SLT. To sign off students must have maximised their achievement in their BTEC qualification; therefore it is not unusual for some students to continue working on their BTEC right up until the end of June so please bare this in mind if booking holidays.

This is an exciting, but extremely busy time of year for us here at BOA, and a challenging yet highly rewarding experience for your children. If you have any concerns about how your child is managing during the exam season or would like any advice in supporting them please do not hesitate to contact the pastoral team and/or your child’s subject teacher.
