IGCSE, AS and A Level Examinations – Questions and Answers
When do the examinations start?
Most written examinations will take place between 2 May and 9 June. All students have their examination schedule and should check their schedule carefully.
Why do some examinations finish at 16:00?
As students in many countries take Cambridge International Examinations, a key time is given to ensure all students taking the examination are in the examination room at the same time regardless of time zones.
The key times for Turkey are 12:00 for morning exams and 16:00 for afternoon examinations.
Can my child study at home?
It is recommended that IGCSE, AS and A level students attend school during the examination session. Teachers will be available to guide then and provide assistance right up to the day of each examination component.
It is permitted for students in year 11 - 13 to study at home between 2 May and 10 June. However, if your child chooses to study at home you must:
1. Inform Ms Selin Belik on the morning of the absence.
2. Ensure they arrive at school at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start of their examination.
NOTE: Students may not study at home if they have exceeded the maximum absences for the year
What is 'special consideration'?
As IGCSE, AS and A level examinations contribute to qualifications, special consideration can be given to students whose performance in an examination is affected by circumstances outside of their control such as illness or injury.
Affected students should take the examination if possible and provide a doctors report covering the day of the examination and an explanation of the nature of the illness / injury. The report will be sent to Cambridge with a special consideration request.
If your child is too ill to take an examination at all, a hospital report will be required.
NOTE: Students who do not complete enough components for a subject may not be eligible for a grade in that subject.
When will we recieve the examination results?
IGCSE, AS and A level results will be released on August 10, 2017.
Students will be issued with an online login and password to access their results as soon as they are available.
