Exam Retakes Summer 2021

The only opportunity to retake an examination is in the Summer with the exception of GCSE English and Mathematics for which there is a November sitting.

If you have left Alcester Grammar School and wish to re-sit any subject, it may be possible to enter you as a 'private candidate'.  Please contact the Exams Officer: exams@alcestergs.com . We do not accept private entries for coursework or practical units.

The deadline for requesting entry to the Summer series is by the end of January Any applications received after this time may still be processed but are not guaranteed and will be subject to significant late entry fees.

There is an administrative fee for 'private candidates', this is in addition to the entry fee charged by the awarding bodies. You will be informed of the fee and how to pay when you have been in contact with the Exams Officer. 

The arrangements for Summer 2021 are to be confirmed following the Ofqual consultation. The outcome of this should be published week commencing 22 February. Further information will be given to you once you have contacted the Exams Officer.
