JCQ Contingency day, June 2019 examination series
In the highly unlikely event that there is national disruption to a day of examinations in
summer 2019, 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 26 June 2019.
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.
