Dates and timetables

Find out when exams are, when results are out and when to submit coursework/controlled assessment throughout the year.

General exam dates

Exam dates for all other awarding organisations are available from their own websites.

The online timetable that provided all awarding organisations' exam dates was decommissioned by the Department for Education on 30 April 2014 and is no longer available.

Exam clashes

Despite the best efforts of all awarding organisations to coordinate exam scheduling so that clashes are avoided, you may find that some students' exams are scheduled for the same time.

Please refer to the JCQ Instructions for conducting examinations to see how these clashes may be managed.

Confirmed timetables

January 2013 was the last opportunity for students in England to sit A-level exams in January. Ofqual has confirmed that these changes to A-levels affect all students regardless of when they started their course.

Changes to GCSEs mean that all GCSEs taken after summer 2013 will be linear, with terminal assessment only available in the summer series.
