Year 11 students in Our Lady and St. Patrick’s College will sit GCSE exams in a number of subjects. The number of exams taken will be determined by your subject choices.
ENGLISH LANGUAGE, ENGLISH LITERATURE, GEOGRAPHY, MATHS, HISTORY, TECHNOLOGY and DOUBLE AWARD SCIENCE are just some of the subjects completing a module at the end of Year 11.
Students will be entered by their teacher and receive an individual examination timetable detailing the times and dates of their exams in February.
LEARNING FOR LIFE AND WORK
Students sit their Citizenship module in June of Year 11. Their remaining modules will be completed in Year 12. When they receive their Citizenship results it will be a mark out of 30.
Ordinary Maths students take one Maths exam in the summer of Year 11. The remaining modules are taken at the end of Year 12. Additional Maths students complete their GCSE Maths at the end of Year 11. If any student wishes to retake a Maths module, they should discuss it with their teacher on their return to school in September.
Students should note that the College pays the fees the first time they sit their exams. If a student fails to turn up for an exam, the College will still be expected to pay for that exam. It is important therefore that candidates inform the school if they are unable to sit an exam. Students will be asked to provide medical evidence to explain their absence. If a doctor’s letter is not provided, the student will be required to pay the exam fee.
Results for summer modules will be posted out and should arrive on Thursday 21st August 2014. Students will also be able to collect their results from school after 10am on that day. Results will not be given over the telephone or sent via email.
