External Examinations


Pupils are entered for external examinations in both Years 11 and 12, in line with the modular GCSE format. Pupils at the end of Year 12 are entered for a range of terminal GCSE papers.

The Examining Board and level of examination entry chosen will be that which is most appropriate to the needs and abilities of the pupils. However, for most subjects this will be Northern Ireland Council for the Curriculum Examinations and Assessment and parents will be consulted on examination entry levels.

Controlled Assessment is undertaken throughout the two years of the GCSE course.
