‘Contingency Day’ for the Summer 2019 Exam Series
The awarding bodies have designated Wednesday 26th June 2019 as a ‘contingency day’ for examinations. This is consistent with the qualification regulators’ document Exam System Contingency Plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common examination timetable is in the event of national or local disruption to examinations. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations.
Centres must therefore remind candidates that they must remain available until Wednesday 26th June 2019 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.
