Exam Information


At Chipping Norton School we are committed to ensuring that candidates are fully briefed on the assessment process in place and are made aware of the required JCQ awarding body instructions and information for candidates.

Public examinations can be a stressful time for students and parents/carers, and we recognise that it’s important that all those involved are well informed.

We are fortunate to have practised for full exams during our Autumn 2023 and Spring 2024 mock seasons and that teachers have had the opportunity to provide valuable feedback to students. Hopefully, this has proved informative and helpful for you and your parents and carers.

The JCQ and awarding bodies have set down criteria which must be followed for the conduct of exams and Chipping Norton School is required to follow these.

Some of the questions you may have about exams are answered in the information in these pages. If there is anything you do not understand or any questions that have not been addressed, please ask.

If you, your parents or carers have any queries or need help or advice at any time before, during or after the exam period, please contact:
