The external examination timetable for the summer 2018 sessions is available to download below. If you require further information, please contact the individual subject teachers.

Internal examination and mock timetables will also appear here in advance of those sessions. 

At Shiplake College, there is no formal period of study leave and it is expected that all pupils will attend College throughout the exam season. External invigilators manage all public examinations in the Summer term, allowing for a full academic programme of lessons throughout the exam season. This approach affords all pupils structure and support for their revision.

Non-Examinable Assessments/Coursework - Deadlines and Appeals

A number of our A Level and GCSE subjects include submitted Non-Examinable Assessments (NEAs), otherwise known as Coursework, as a component of the overall qualification mark. The submission deadline dates for the relevant subjects and levels will be available to download below, which pupils are required to adhere to. Please do contact the respective Head of Department with any specific queries.

In keeping with updated Joint Council for Qualifications regulations, pupils are entitled to formally appeal the result of their internally marked NEA, providing they can provide clear evidence for such an appeal.

Study Leave

At Shiplake College, whilst pupils may request permission to take study leave, we strongly encourage all pupils to attend College throughout the exam season. We employ external invigilators to manage all of our public examinations in the Summer Term, ensuring teachers are available to run a full academic programme of lessons throughout the exam season. This approach provides the structure we feel pupils need in the crucial period ahead of examinations, targeting both individual and group-specific weaknesses, receiving important feedback and honing exam technique. We firmly believe that the majority of pupils will benefit from studying within the College.

Requests for study leave away from College should be made via the request form. Please ensure that all study leave is formally applied for in this manner, at least 48 hours in advance, to ensure that, for safeguarding reasons, we have a clear record of pupil absences. With knowledge of absentees staff are also able to plan academic lessons more effectively.
