English GCSE exam dates
Dear Parent/ Guardian,
If your child attained a Level 3 in English Language at school or college, they have been offered a free November resit at Varndean College.  He/ she should already know if they are signed up for the resit. 
We would like to let you know the forthcoming English GCSE exam dates in advance, so that you can put these onto the calendar, to ensure your child is prepared and present on the day. They are:
  • Mon 5 Nov, 9am
  • Wed 7 Nov, 9am
(Two years ago, a handful of students missed the exams or arrived on the wrong day or were late etc. and this had a highly detrimental effect on their final grade, so we are really keen to get them organised this time around).
In addition, if you wish to provide your son/daughter with further help in the form of exam-practice beforehand, we recommend 'York Notes for GCSE AQA Practice tests for English Language' (York Press/ Pearson: approx. £5.00).  Failing this, on the Varndean Moodle page under English GCSE, students can also access free E-books to practise their exam-skills.
Thank you very much for your support in this matter.
