Exam Information and Results
IMPORTANT EXAMS INFORMATION – SUMMER 2020
Please do not book holidays before and including the 24th June 2020 for the reason below
Contingency day, for 2020 examination series
How might the contingency day be used in the 2020 examination series?
In the highly unlikely event that there is national disruption to a day of examinations in summer 2020, the awarding bodies will liaise with the qualification regulators and the DfE to agree the most appropriate option for managing the impact. As a last resort the affected examinations will be rescheduled. Although every effort would be taken to keep the impact to a minimum, it is possible that there could be more than one timetable date affected following the disruption, up to and including the contingency day on 24 June 2020.
Centres will be alerted if it was agreed to reschedule the examinations and the affected candidates will be expected to make themselves available in such circumstances.
Where candidates choose not to be available for the rescheduled examination(s) for reasons other than those traditionally covered by special consideration, they will not be eligible for enhanced grading arrangements.
Centres must therefore ensure candidates and parents are aware of this contingency arrangement so that they may take it into account when making their plans for the summer. However, the awarding bodies will not insist upon candidates being available throughout the entire timetable period as a matter of course.
The contingency day will become a standard feature of subsequent examination timetables.
Financial support available for BHASVIC 2019 leavers – Do you qualify?
Founded in 1922, the Old Boys War Memorial Fund exists to support BHASVIC students with financial challenges (which cannot be covered by other forms of financial support such as the bursary) or those who wish to undertake a project or trip which enhances their education. For example, in recent years, the fund has supported a student with university set-up costs after she experienced a significant disruption to her home life, and another student who took part in a volunteering project abroad to gain experience relevant to his chosen degree subject, and therefore enhance his application to university. Recognising the problems caused by the economic climate, the fund generally supports those with financial challenges that might limit their opportunities at BHASVIC and beyond. Grants usually range from £150 to £500.
If you are interested in finding out more, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance stating how much you would like to apply for (up to a maximum of £500) and what you would be hoping to use this for. Please note, before making a decision, we will need to speak to your subject teachers and/or personal tutor/Guidance Manager to ensure they support your application.
