University Admissions Testing

STEP (Sixth Term Examination Paper) is a Mathematics examination used by the University of Cambridge, the University of Warwick and Imperial College London. Please check details of your course(s) to confirm if you are required to take STEP as part of the application process. Other universities sometimes ask candidates to take STEP as part of their offer – in such cases, the university can advise on which papers to take.

STEP Registration Deadline: 27th April 2023

Please come and collect an application form from outside the Exams Office and make sure it is returned by the above date. Should you require any access arrangements, please discuss these as soon as possible so that the relevant planning can be undertaken.

JCQ Notices to Candidates:2022-23

Students should familiarise themselves with the following information for candidates documentation and be fully aware of the expectations during examinations and assessments.

Reviews of Centre Marks

Candidates may request a review of the school’s marking of Non-Examination Assessment (NEA) in GCSE, GCE, BTEC, CTEC, CNAT and Project qualifications (including coursework and controlled assessment). If candidates are considering this option, they should discuss their result(s) with the relevant teacher and/or Head of Department and they may request copies of materials to assist them in making their decision. Requests for reviews must be made to the Exams Officer, using the form which can be downloaded here. There is a fee of £30 per review, to cover staffing and administrative costs, payable through My Child At School.

Please ensure that the individual components (papers or units) are clearly identified and listed separately on the paperwork submitted.

The final deadline for any requests for reviews in qualifications to be awarded in summer 2023 is 9.00am Wednesday 26th April 2023*.  Candidates should receive the outcome(s) of their review(s) by Friday 5th May.

* Please note that this date does not apply to Art/Graphics/Textiles or Photography and P.E. because the exam board submission deadlines are different for these subjects. Please refer to information provided by the individual subject teachers or Heads of Department.

Please be aware that reviews can lead to marks going down as well as up.

Further information about Non-Examination Assessment can be found in the JCQ Notices to Candidates on this page.

Exam Access Arrangements (EAA)

Beaumont School follows the Access Arrangements procedures that are set in place by the regulator JCQ. We have a stringent system in place as follows:

Years 7 and 8: We build up evidence of need through teacher feedback and assessment. This means that students who may have had test arrangements in primary school will not automatically qualify for the same support until we build up our own evidence of need.

Year 9: We test the whole year group (during Autumn Term) for various speeds of working and begin to introduce students who are eligible for EAA to using this as their normal way of working.

Year 10: Applications for EAA are made by the school for GCSE (and other 16+ qualifications) . There is an information evening held for parents/carers who have children who have qualified for EAA.

Year 12: Applications for EAA are made by school for A-Level (and other 18+ qualifications).

A diagnosis of a disability does not automatically qualify for EAA, the student would still have to meet the criteria set by JCQ.

Private assessments are not accepted by JCQ and therefore Beaumont cannot accept these.

For extra time to be considered a student must have two below average scores or one below average score and one low average score in two different processing speeds during the testing in Year 9 by the qualified assessor at Beaumont.


Access Arrangements allow candidates/learners with special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries to access the assessment without changing the demands of the assessment. These may involve readers, scribes and Braille question papers. In this way Awarding Bodies will comply with the duty of the Equality Act 2010 to make ‘reasonable adjustments’.

Reasonable Adjustments

The Equality Act 2010 requires an Awarding Body to make reasonable adjustments where a disabled person would be at a substantial disadvantage in undertaking an assessment.

A reasonable adjustment for a particular person may be unique to that individual and may not be included in the list of available Access Arrangements.

How reasonable the adjustment is applied will depend on a number of factors, including the needs of the disabled candidate/learner. An adjustment may not be considered reasonable if it involves unreasonable costs, timeframes or affects the security or integrity of the assessment.

There is no duty on the Awarding Bodies to make any adjustment to the assessment objectives being tested in an assessment.

For more information, please refer to the JCQ guidance, which can be downloaded here.

Special Consideration

Special Consideration is a post-examination adjustment to a candidate’s mark or grade to reflect temporary illness, temporary injury or some other event outside of the candidate’s control at the time of the assessment, which has had, or is reasonably likely to have had, a material effect on a candidate’s ability to take an assessment or demonstrate his or her normal level of attainment in an assessment.

You can download a copy of the JCQ document, A Guide to the Special Consideration Process 2022-2023 here.

Please notify the Examinations Officer, on the day of the examination, if you feel that an application for Special Consideration should be considered for submission.

A copy of the school’s Examinations & NEA Policy can be viewed here.
