Year 11 Mock 3 Timetable

Summer 2023

Year 11 Summer Exam Timetable 2023

The Summer Exam Timetable for Year 11 starts on 20 April 2023 and Contingency Day (the last day students must be available to take exams) is confirmed as 28 June 2023. Please note that some exams may finish after 3pm. We are aware there are some exam ‘clashes’ which are where 2 different subjects sit exams at the same time. Anyone with a clash will be informed what to do on exam day but if you are worried then please speak to the exams team. Some exam papers are designed to be sat back-to-back where they are in the same subject (such as German or History). Students will be issued with individual candidate timetables in due course. Please make sure you have read the Candidate Handbook for this year, and again, if you have any questions then please speak to the exams team.


Results Day is confirmed as Thursday 24 August 2023.



Please call the Exams Office on 01332 540024 or email exams@murraypark.derby.sch.uk and we will draw them from archive and you will be able to collect from reception by appointment.

Replacement certificates: if you have lost your GCSE certificates you will need to contact each of the exam boards you took exams with and give them your personal details so they can produce a replacement for you. They usually charge for this service. If you can remember the old exam board name but don’t know the new name we’ve attached a list. Our school ‘centre number’ is 23336.

Replacement statements of results/records of results: if you need a replacement history of your results you should contact Murray Park School Exams Office on 01332 540024 or email exams@murraypark.derby.sch.uk to make enquiries about a copy (providing a record is still available on the school database). You should will be asked for your full name, date of birth and year the exams were taken. The report will be a basic list of subject, grade and date the exam was taken in month and year only.
