EXAMINATION GUIDE & INFORMATION

Main body content

Regular exam practice with detailed feedback

With the high expectations on the end-of-year exams, we place a strong emphasis on building students' confidence in this key area. Our system of regular Examination Practice Papers (EPPs) aims not only to help students to familiarise themselves with the exam process and requirements, but also allows teachers to thoroughly monitor students' performance. 

The awarding bodies and the Joint Council for Qualification (JCQ) have strict criteria that have to be followed for the conduct of both examination and non-examination assessments and Chelsea Independent College must follow precisely. The College Examinations Officer, Maricarmen Perez, can be contacted at maricarmenperez@cic.ac.
