Exams Timetable Tool


Please note that the information contained within our EXAMS TIMETABLE TOOL is only applicable to UK centres


The Exams Office is the only organisation funding the redevelopment of online tools previously supplied by the Department for Education.


The Exams Timetable Tool is the only exams database of general and some vocational qualifications from AQA, Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and NCFE which you can search, filter, edit and download. See below for the qualifications and awarding bodies included within the tool.


The Exams Timetable Tool enables members to search for and select exams to build a complete exams timetable for their centre.The tool is designed to allow the creation of a complete timetable quickly and easily for your centre several months before the information is available in MIS systems. This means that you can plan in advance to manage rooms, invigilators and timetable clashes.


No other organisation provides such a facility with information received directly from the awarding bodies contained in a fully functioning and regularly maintained online tool



For reference and planning purposes (until the Exams Timetable Tool 2018/19 is launched on The Exams Office's new website in September) a spreadsheet of the exam timetable has been made available
