Dates and timetables

Find out when exams are, when results are out, when to submit coursework and when to enter students for exams throughout the year.

General exam dates

The Department for Education website holds exam dates provided by the biggest awarding bodies.

You can use their site to search, refine, sort and pick from a list of subjects and exams to create a personalised exams timetable for printing and downloading to your own PC or laptop. This website is for exams officers, but can also be used by teachers and students.

In order to use the timetable, you need to know the awarding body name and the exam code or full title of each exam.

Exam clashes

Despite the best efforts of all exam boards 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.
