A level and gcse dates 2018

Hi there, a question for all you teachers out there, hope you can help.
Daughter is sitting GCSE's and son is sitting his A levels next summer
Is it likely that they will both be finished by the 29/06/18 ?
I think we will all need a break by then
thank you

Fingers crossed then. Really not bothered about prom, they have both done them previously.

My sons school closes on 30 June. He is doing A levels this year so 100% sure they will be finished by then.
He is at a Scottish school but follows the English system.

Different exam boards have different dates - however if you know which board's exams your kids are sitting the dates are discoverable.

The trend for starting A level classes at the end of the summer term is an additional complication as more schools seem to be adopting this.

The last exam (usually A level Physics) is always on the last Friday in June, in 2018 that is 29/06/18.

My DS just did his GCSEs and he was finished by 16/06.

Some schools do sixth form inductions late June/early July so you need to watch out for that.

I have a child with GCSE exams next year and looked into this. We fly out 12th July which (fingers crossed) means she won't miss Prom.

My DD is doing GCSEs next year (I'm still coming to terms with that one!) She is hopefully heading to Borneo on the 21st of July and they will also have a prom so I'm following this thread with interest x

I am also interested our DS's school is shut the last friday in June 2018- so the exams must be finished by then.

Looked at the exam schedule for this year and his exams might finish a week earlier - but I don't want to book until the dates are confirmed.
