COVID – 19 Mock Exam Arrangements
Equivalency Exams are operating daily under the “new normal” social distancing regime.
We have exceeded government expectations with an alternative venue, using thermal temperature detectors, individual isolations rooms along with the mandatory facemasks, hand sanitisers and social distancing.
In addition we continue to use high quality examinations benchmarked on AQA and Edexcel GCSE syllabuses administered under JCQ (Joint for Qualifications) regulations, by trained invigilators and marked by a team of independent markers who have/or currently mark for the exam boards.
We are ensuring the needs of all students are being met safely and well within the required time!
School Based Testing
This option is used by some candidates where the headteacher is prepared to commit to the school hosting while following our security procedures and JCQ examination protocol to ensure the security and integrity of the equivalency examination.
If you have a school prepared to support your exam please check for more details by viewing the “You Choose Where” Option.
