Examination Information


KS4 is a very important time as students prepare for their GCSE examinations.  JSTC wants to ensure that our students are in the best possible position when it comes to sitting their final GCSE exams at the end of Y11.


Students will sit internal/mock examinations that will be conducted as if it were a ‘real’ GCSE examination.  It is important that students are ready for the whole exam experience, and if anything needs addressing then this can be done before the formal GCSEs take place. They will be conducted following the JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) rules and regulations.


Here you will find some important and useful information to guide students and parents/carers through what is expected and to help with preparation.
