Inclement Weather

Due to current weather reports and the Department of Education’s subsequent decision to close all schools on Monday 16 October 2017, CCEA has postponed the Essential Skills, Application of Number, Level 1 and Level 2 examinations until Thursday 19 October 2017 at 13:30. All other Essential Skills examinations scheduled for Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 October will take place as scheduled.

Candidates unable to take the rescheduled examinations on Thursday 19 October will have another opportunity to take the examinations in January 2018. 

Schools, Colleges and Training Centres are requested to retain the Essential Skills, Application of Number, Level 1 and Level 2 examination papers, unopened in their secure storage until Thursday 19 October, when normal Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) Instructions for Conducting Examinations rule apply.
