Contingency day 2019
Wednesday 26 June will be a ‘contingency day’ for all exam boards in the UK.
In line with Ofqual’s exam system contingency plan, this is an additional day at the end of the exam period. It will only be used in the event of major local or national disruption to summer 2019 exams, in which case it is possible that timetable dates could be affected up to and including the contingency day.
Schools should remind students that they will need to make sure that they are available until 26 June 2019. If the contingency plan needs to be used, we will contact centres with details of what to do next.
If you have any questions please contact us at email@example.com
We and the other exam boards do our best to coordinate exam scheduling and avoid clashes, but this isn’t always possible, and some students' exams may be scheduled to take place at the same time.
If you’d like to know more about how we schedule exams, take a look at our guide to producing exam timetables
The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) publish guidance on what to do in the event of exam clashes. View JCQ’s Instructions for Conducting Examinations >
Provisional timetables for May/June 2020 will be published on 28 February 2019.
