Inclement Weather – CCEA Examinations continue as scheduled

CCEA examinations will proceed as normal on Wednesday 14th January 2015. Candidates should contact their schools in relation to potential disruption due to inclement weather.

In the event of weather conditions worsening and preventing some candidates from attending their centre for examinations or where schools are closed and it has not been possible to make alternative arrangements to take the examination at a different location, then the options are as follows:

  • Where candidates are sitting any units that are not their terminal (final) examination series, they may be entered again for the June 2015 series.
  • Where candidates are sitting units as part of their terminal examination series and no further re-sit opportunity is available, then an application for Special Consideration may be made. The candidate must meet the published criteria for Special Consideration as indicated in the JCQ publication, Access Arrangements, Reasonable Adjustments and Special Consideration. The document can be viewed here.
