Exams & Procedures

Manor High School is a certified exam centre. We offer a full range of GCSE subjects to our Year 11 students. 

We have experience in running exams and ensuring students are fully prepared. With small marginal gains, that manage and relieve the anxiety and stress of exams, we are able to offer some of the best results in the area and nationally. 

The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) regulates qualifications, examinations and assessments in England.

The management of exams in schools is based on guidance from The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ). JCQ is the single voice for its member awarding bodies. Details of their policies and guidance for schools can be found on their website: www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office

Please note: this page is updated annually in advance of the GCSE exams.

Year 11 Advanced Information

Links to the advanced information released by exam boards w/c 7 February can be found here. This indicates, in some subjects, the changes to some courses due to COVID-19. It is important to note that the content of most of the GCSEs has not been reduced. We were aware of this at the beginning of the year, this is not new news.  We have always maintained that the exams are the same in difficulty as previous years. In many cases the exams will assess the same varied array of knowledge of previous years. The only difference is that the advanced information indicates the major topics that will be examined.

The advanced information states what will definitely be examined in the summer from the qualification specification and students should base their revision upon these lists. Students across the country all have access to this same information and grades are assigned based on student comparisons. Therefore, if a student chooses not to prepare then they are putting themselves at a greater disadvantage than in a normal year as all students across the country will have seen the advanced information which removes the element of 'luck' of a topic coming up in the exam, and removes the 'everything I revised wasn't on the paper'.
