Exams and Certificates

2021-22 Exam Information

  • Resit opportunities for A-level and GCSE awarded in 2021 are available in autumn 2021 and summer 2022.
  • BTEC and other vocational exams went ahead as planned in January/February.
  • Details of examinations for Summer 2022 have been published and exam timetables shared with candidates.
  • Exam boards for GCSE and A Levels in summer 2022 have published ‘advance information’ for each qualification, which is designed to help exam candidates and teachers focus revision by sharing which topics and learning content will be linked to questions with the highest marks. Students should have covered all the subject content. 

Collecting Summer 2021 Exam Certificates

Summer 2021 exam certificates are now available to collect from South Craven School during term time between the hours of 8am and 4pm.

Should the student be unable to collect their certificates in person, please download a copy of the Candidate Permission Form For Certificate Collection that must be completed by the student to nominate someone to collect them on their behalf.

The completed form must be brought into school when certificates are collected by anyone other than who is named on the certificates. Please remember to also bring photo identification with you.

Legally, we only have to hold onto certificates for one year, so collecting them as soon as possible is recommended.

Key Information on How Awards Were Made in Summer 2021

Appeals

The window for making an appeal against an exam award from Summer 2021 has now closed.

Resits

In the Autumn, there will be an additional examination series, where you can re sit any qualifications where you received a Teacher Assessed Grade on which you would like to improve. 

Please contact the school with any questions, or to request an entry on exams@southcraven.org.

Lost Exam Certificates

We do not have duplicates of your exam certificates. The only organisations that can replace them are the exam boards that awarded them. Most exam boards will charge you for their replacement.

Plagiarism Monitoring

We have recently started using PlagScan to monitor coursework submissions for plagiarism – this is great preparation for students going onto University where monitoring takes place as a matter of course.
