How we assess attainment and progress at Nova

During the academic year there are two exam periods for pupils in Years 7-10. These are known as Best in Everyone Assessments, one in November and one towards the end of the summer term.

Internal exams for Year 11 students are called PPEs (pre-public examinations). There are two PPEs each year.

Students in Years 7-10 are assessed using BiE (Best in Everyone) assessments.
