Examinations Office

The Examinations Office is responsible for the organisation of all internal and external examinations.

It is the aim of Ripon Grammar School to make the examination experience as free from stress and as successful as possible for all candidates.

If students or parents have any queries or need help or advice at any time before, during or after the examinations please contact the exams office staff. Alternatively, refer to the examinations frequently asked questions. page.

Internal Examinations

Internal examinations are scheduled throughout the year (see schedule below) and students are issued with their own timetable to help  formulate their own revision plan. Third to sixth form examinations are scheduled to take place in the gymnasium and students are expected to follow the rules of external examinations. First and second form examinations take place in classrooms.

External Examinations

The practical examinations, assessments and controlled assessments take place throughout the school year as notified by the head of subject.

For external examinations all students will receive a personalised entry checking form via their form tutors.  This form should be signed and return to the examinations office.  Students are then issued with a personalised timetable along with a copy of an examinations booklet which explains all the rules and regulations students must follow when sitting their examinations. 

It is vital that all students arrive for their exams on time, with all their equipment and fully prepared.

We appreciate that exams can be a stressful time for students. If any student does have any queries or concerns they can see Miss Lancaster or Mrs Dale in the Exams office (Admin Corridor) at break, lunchtime or after school

Results Day

A-Level Result Day – Thursday 17th August 2017 from 8.30am School Library

GCSE Results Day – Thursday 25th August 2016 from 8.30am School Library

  • If you wish any other person (including family members) to collect your results on your behalf, you must give your written authorisation to Miss Lancaster before results day.
  • Candidates who do not collect their results will receive notification through the normal post. Letters will be posted on results day and not before.
  • No results will be given out by telephone or via email under any circumstances.
  • Boarding students should speak to Miss Lancaster or Mrs Dale before results day to make arrangements for collection of results.

Collection of Certificates

Certificates are usually available for collection on speech day for A-Level students. AS-Level and GCSE students will be informed, via their form tutor, when certificates are available for collection. Certificates will not be given to anyone other than the candidate without the candidate’s written authorisation.

Ripon Grammar School is only obliged to keep certificates for a period of one year after issue. If candidates do not collect their certificates within this time (or if they lose their certificates) they can only be replaced by direct application to the appropriate examination boards. This will require proof of identity (such as a birth certificate) and a substantial fee per examination board. You are therefore urged to collect your certificates and to keep them safely.
