Contingency day- affecting students sitting exams in the Summer of 2023
The awarding bodies have collectively agreed a contingency day for several years now which is always scheduled at the end of the series of exams. 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.
We would advise that you should consider the contingency days when making plans for the summer. Candidates should be available on these contingency days should examinations need to be rescheduled.
