It is very important that all students, parents and carers read the JCQ Candidate Information section of this website. It outlines key rules and regulations relating to exams and also provides candidates with the guidance they may require while studying GCSEs and other KS4 courses.

November Series

In November 2020 there are a series of exams running for students who have opted to resit some exams following the Centre Assessed Grades which were issued in the summer. These are for students who left City/Central Academy in the Summer and these Exams do not affect our current students.

January Series

In January 2020 there will be a series of External exams for several OCR Cambridge National Subjects including:
  • OCR CN Health and Social Care
  • OCR CN Sports Studies
  • OCR CN Creative iMedia
  • OCR CN Child Development
If a candidate is due to sit these exams their teacher will give them more information.

In addition to this, you will need the simple exam timetable (date, time, name and length of examination in a table) for November and January series.

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have issued the following guidance which we recommend all students read before their examinations.
