  • Exams


Welcome to the exams section of the website.

The Exams Officer's role is to organise and run all exams held in school including GCSEs, Years 9, 10 and 11 Mock exams, Asset Language Exams, A Level, and Level 3 BTEC/OCR Cambridge Technical exams. They liaise closely with exam boards and government assessment agencies to ensure that we carry out exams in line with the national guidelines.

There is a fantastic and experienced team of exam invigilators who come in to supervise and administer exams. The invigilators are there not only to supervise and enforce exam conditions, but to maintain a calm atmosphere to enable all students to perform to the best of their ability.

GCSE exams take place at the end of Year 11. Those taking OCR Cambridge National subjects may take unitised exams throughout year 10/11. In Braintree Sixth Form, A Level exams take place in the main exam season in May/June each year.  Level 3 BTEC and OCR Cambridge Technical courses will have exams throughout the two year study.

Exam season is a particularly stressful time for students, parents and carers but the following links should answer any questions you may have.
