Public Exam timetables

Timetable information can be found on the links below.  It is important to note that public timetabled exams are conducted on the same date and time nationally, so cannot be moved.  If a student is unable to attend an exam, the school should be contacted as a matter of urgency.

Student timetables for the summer exam season are normally distrubuted prior to the Easter break.  The dates for the summer 2023 exam series have not been published yet, but these normally run from mid-May through towards the end of June.  Exam boards expect to finalise the overall dates by the autumn of 2022.

- Pearson (Edexcel)



Summer 2022 certificates will be available to students in November, and we aim to distribute all of these by Christmas.  We do urge students to collect their certificates as schools are required to destroy them after a year.

Y13 leavers' certificates are normally available for collection at the Christmas reunion. If not collected then, they will be posted home using the recorded delivery service.

Exam board results certificates are important legal documents and should be retained carefully.  If certificates have been lost, and exam board documentation is required, information on how to do this can be found here.  Exam boards do charge for this service.  In some cases, depending upon date, the school can provide proof of attainment from our records.

Regulation of Exams

Most exams at Sheldon are regulated by JCQ, the Joint Council for Qualifications.  This body is responsible for the framework around how exams and other assessments are conducted.  More information can be found here.

It is important that students are aware of the expectations and responsibilities with regard to exams.  All JCQ regulations for candidates can be found here.

“Ensuring that pupils are healthy physically and mentally is central within all safeguarding policies and practices and is an exemplary feature in the school.”
