Sir William Borlase's Grammar School

GCSEs

The entry deadline for GCSEs is Monday 4th October 2021.  In order to meet this external exam board deadline, if you wish to sit an GCSE examination in the autumn series, please email exams@swbgs.com from your school email address by Thursday 30th September 2021, clearly stating which subject(s) you wish to be entered for.  You will receive confirmation that your entry has been processed.

The GCSE exams will be run in two sessions.  English Language and Maths will be timetabled between Monday 1st and Tuesday 9th November 2021 and all other GCSE subjects will be scheduled between Monday 15th November and Friday 3rd December 2021.  Ofqual expect students to sit these examinations at the Centre that gave them their Teacher Assessed Grade, so if you are moving elsewhere for Sixth Form, you need to bear that in mind.  The exam boards have published their timetables for these examinations so you will be able to look up which subjects are on which days using the following links:
