Candidate examination handbook and JCQ regulations
This handbook will brief candidates on the exam and assessment process at The Holt School and the JCQ regulations:
All candidates taking public examinations and assessments must read the following JCQ documents:
Certificates must be collected in person and signed for at Reception after 1st December (KS4) or after the presentation evening (KS5).
It is very important to collect your certificates and look after them carefully, as you will need them in the future and replacements are very expensive and difficult to obtain. The Holt School is not obliged to retain certificates after a year and unclaimed certificates may be destroyed or returned to the exam board.
