Exam Dates

External Summer GCSE and GCE exams 15 May - 29 June 2017

Individual candidate time tables will be issued in spring 2017. Students have been issued a Statement of Entry which lists all the examination entries made on thier behalf. These should be checked carefully and any issues reported to the subject teacher or the Examinations Officer. The dates of the written exams will be shown on the Statement of Entry together with the exam boards, award and unit codes. This information will help students to access information independently from the exam board websites.

The summer exam time table below should not be used in place of individual candidate timetimes once they have been issued in early spring (due to resolved time table clashes). Summer 2017 Exam Time Table

Certificates

Your certificates are valuable documents. Valuable in the sense that replacement copies can cost up to £45 per certificate but also as they are proof you studied at Ralph Allen and completed the course. This is irrespective of the grades you achieved.

If you go on to further education anytime in the future you will need to produce them. Many employers will also ask to see them. It is in your interest to collect your certificates even if you don’t think you will ever need them.

We are only obliged to keep your certificates for one year after which they will be securely destroyed. Replacements will only be available directly from the relevant Examination Boards at a cost as previously mentioned.

How to get your certificates.

The best time to collect your certificates is during certificate presentation evenings. For students sitting exams this summer details of the presentation evenings will be posted nearer the time. 

If you were unable to collect your certificates at the last presentation evenings there will be limited availability to collect them and by prior arrangement only. Certificates will not be available during examinations or results periods. You should either;

1.    Email Mrs Tooley, Examinations Assistant  s.tooley@ralphallemschool.com asking to arrange collection. If you are unable to collect certificates yourself you may email Mrs Tooley with details of who you would like to collect them on your behalf. The nominated person will need to bring photo ID with them upon collection. Unfortunately if we cannot see any ID we will not be able to release your certificates.

or

2.    Use this Certificate Postage Request Form  to request postage of your certificates with a payment of £3.50 to cover the cost of posting and packaging. Cheques payable to Ralph Allen School.
