Examinations

Saint Ambrose College is a large examination centre. Our students sit a wide range of public examinations from various public examinations boards.  In addition to this, students can also sit specific university entrance examinations and STEP papers.

Public examinations are usually conducted in the school gymnasium.  The main examination periods are from early May until late June each year.  The examinations office is responsible for the organisation of all public examinations.   It is the aim of Saint Ambrose College to make the examination experience as free from stress and as successful as possible for all candidates.   If students or parents have any queries or need help or advice at any time before, during or after the examinations please contact the Examinations Officer via email: exams@st-ambrosecollege.org.uk

Results days are usually in the last two weeks of August each year. 

Exam certificates are distributed at our annual GCSE/A Level Awards Evenings held in December.  Any certificates not collected are retained by the College for a minimum period of 12 months.

In addition to running and organising public examinations, the Examinations Officer is also responsible for devising and overseeing the internal examination timetables. 

In this section you will find useful links to public and school examinations policies.  Also included are published letters to parents concerning the school’s arrangements for examinations, as well as any other useful information regarding public and internal examinations.
