Potential for Inclement Weather – CCEA Examinations continue as scheduled

Candidates should direct all enquires to their school or college.

CCEA examinations will proceed as normal on Wednesday 11 and Friday 13 January 2017. Candidates should make reasonable efforts to attend their examination, where it is safe to do so.

If weather conditions worsen, candidates may not be able to attend their examinations because:

  • It is unsafe for the candidate to make the journey; or
  • The school or college is not able to open and has not provided an alternative examination centre.

In such circumstances, the following may apply:

  • Where candidates are sitting any units that are not their terminal (final) examination series, they may be entered again for the June 2017 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.
