Entries And Withdrawals
GCE and GCSE entries for the summer examinations are made at the beginning of the spring term and personalised statements of entry are sent to students for checking. Where Upper Sixth students re-take modules in the January following their GCE AS results, statements of entry are sent to students at the beginning of October.
Statements of entry show the exam fees for each unit, together with a total cost which will be added to the school fees.
Students are asked to check their statements of entry with their parent/s or guardian/s. It is essential that students check to ensure their full name and date of birth are correctly recorded. Names appearing on statements of entry must correspond with a student's birth certificate, passport , Deedpoll certificate or other official document. Forenames must be in the correct order with no short forms such as ‘Sam’.
Students will also be asked to check whether they have been entered for all the examinations they are expecting to take and none they are not expecting to take.
Where a subject, such as a language where a student is bi-lingual, has been studied outside of school, it may be possible to enter a student for their examinations at Trinity, providing there is no coursework or controlled assessment element to the subject. In these cases, details must be sent to the Examinations Officer as early as possible in the autumn term of the academic year the student is hoping to sit his or her examinations.
Personal data: entries are processed electronically and relevant data including name, date of birth and gender are transferred to the awarding bodies along with entry details. Please see the JCQ Privacy Notice below.
The memo accompanying a student’s statement of entry will give a deadline for notifying the Examinations Officer about any amendments. Once this deadline has passed, entries will still be charged and any new entries will attract substantial penalty fees of up to three times the original entry fee.
Accordingly, should a student want to withdraw from an examination after the deadline given by the Examinations Officer, a form must be completed, signed by the student and countersigned by the student’s parents as the entry fee cannot be refunded at this stage.
