Yellow Label Service - June 2013 series
From this summer, we are emailing examiner labels to schools/colleges 24 hours in advance to give you more time to prepare for each day's exams. Further information about the Yellow Label Service is available from the Department for Education (DfE) website and our dispatching scripts page.
Important information about June 2013 entries
As GCSEs are changing from modular to linear, summer 2013 is the final opportunity for students to sit modular exams for most GCSEs.
Students who want to finish their courses in June 2013 must complete all the units that count towards their certificate within the 2012/13 academic year, and be entered for the subject award.
GCSE November series re-sits only
The November 2014 and future November series will be re-sit opportunities only and limited to students re-taking GCSE English, English Language and Mathematics.
