GCSE examinations guide for parents, carers and students

This 2020 Edition of our Exams Booklet has been created to provide important and helpful information for you and your parents/carers. Please read it carefully and thoroughly. Show it to your parents/carers so they are also aware of the examination regulations and procedures to follow in the event of any problems occurring.

Please keep this somewhere safe so it can be referred to during the course of the year. The awarding bodies (or examination boards) set down strict criteria which must be followed for the conduct of examinations. Magna is required to follow these instructions precisely.

With this in mind, it is essential that you read and pay particular attention to the Information for Candidates information that is available in the left side column on this page.

Some of the questions you may have are answered in this booklet.
