At Key Stage 4, mocks and pre-public examinations will be held in all subjects that have an examined component. They will be held under formal examination conditions and will not generally be in lessons. Year 10 students will sit GCSE Statistics and BTEC assessments as appropriate.
During Key Stage 5, internal examinations are taken at the end of Year 12 and public examinations at the end of Year 13. There will be some exceptions to this – for example, university admissions tests and vocational examinations.
