Frequently Asked Questions - Examinations
I will be going overseas and will miss my exams, can I sit the exams before I go or when I come back? No. Examination be it National or International cannot be rescheduled to any other time, because this will constitute a malpractice. The same applies for sickness and bereavement.
However, for reasons of sickness and bereavement or other special circumstances, the child/parent, through Ministry of Education, may ask for special consideration so
that the situation of the child can be considered when awarding grades. (Cambridge Examinations) Where local Examinations are concerned, the school can use the assessment results of the child for decision making purposes.
If I lose my certificate, can I apply to get another one, even if I have to pay? No. Certificates are issued once only. However, the child can get a transcript from CCATS that contains the grade(s) he/she obtained, at a cost.
For Cambridge candidates, we can request for a Certifying statement. Check with the Assessment and Examination section for fees. Alternatively we can issue you with a stamped copy of your statement of result, at cost.
If I miss a continuous assessment at school, can I do it at a later date? The school should be able to administer a comparable continuous assessment, if you have a valid reason for missing the continuous assessment at the first instance.
I sat all six subjects of the national exams but I see only 5 grades on my certificate. What happened to the missing result? The most likely circumstance is that you did not pass that subject. Therefore, the subject is not recorded on the certificate
I have lost my RoA file. Can the school provide me with another one? No. But the school can provide a copy of the report cards (End of Year reports. With regards to certificates, the same procedure as in Q2 will apply.
Can I bring my RoA file home for my parents to see? Yes. The RoA file is the student’s property although it is kept at school. Parents can come to the school to view his/her child’s RoA file. However, to take the file home
the parent has to sign the relevant school document, and will be given a time limit to bring it back, since it will be used during selection for post-secondary placement.
