The Board recommends that schools follow JCQ regulations which have recently changed. In particular, the Board draws your attention to one specific change, noted on our website.
Candidates whose mother tongue is not English are allowed to use English to mother tongue dictionaries. They are also allowed up to 10% extra time if they have studied in the medium of English for less than three years. This must be agreed in advance with the candidate's first-choice senior school.
The extra time allocation for candidates whose mother tongue is not English has been reduced from 25% to 10%, with the number of years they have studied in the medium of English extended from two to three years.
Please note, the Board also advises, as usual, that prep schools should liaise with senior schools with regards to any special needs allowances.
