2023 Contingency Dates – Important information:

The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 28th June 2023 as the Contingency day for examinations. The afternoons of Thursday 8th June and Thursday 15th June have been designated as Contingency afternoons for examinations. This is consistent with the Qualification Regulators’ document exams system Contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The designation of Contingency days within the common examination timetable is in the event of national or significant local disruption to examinations in the United Kingdom. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations.

Centres must therefore remind candidates that they must remain available until Wednesday 28th June 2023, should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.

When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say

“You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you’ve cheated the guy in the glass” 

Dale Wimbrow
