Please read to ensure you are fully informed of what to expect during Exams
Please check the dates and sessions (AM or PM) of your examinations very carefully. Also check that where applicable you are entered for the correct tier ie Foundation or Higher. Practical/Speaking test examinations will be arranged by your teacher and you will be advised in due course. The exam dates are set by the exam boards and cannot be changed for any reason.
Morning examinations start at 9.00am prompt.
Afternoon examinations start at 1.00pm prompt.
It is very important that you arrive at least 15 minutes early for your examinations. If you are late for your examination there is a possibility you will not be allowed entry into the examination room.
Candidate Name and Number
Every candidate has a four digit number that they must write on all exam related materials. Candidates are entered under their legal surname and this is the name which will appear on certificates.
The school will re-schedule papers internally (on the same day) where there is a clash of subjects.
Exams will be held in the Sports Hall or Gym, unless you are advised differently. From the moment you enter the exam room you are under exam conditions and you must not communicate with anyone else. You must make sure your mobile phone is switched off and not on your person, if caught with it on you; you could be disqualified from the exam and possibly the whole qualification.
If you are really ill on the day of your examination, you must contact the school and leave a message for Ms Clarke (Examinations Manager) to say why you will not be attending your examination. You must also obtain a doctor’s note stating that you were unfit to take the exam. Without a doctor’s note you will not get a grade and will be charged for the exam fee.
Food and Drink
You are not permitted to bring any food into the examination room. Any food you do bring will have to be confiscated. You are only permitted to drink water and it must be in a transparent container (labels must be taken off water bottles), no cartons or cans. It is advisable to have a bottle with a sports cap to prevent it spilling on your exam paper.
You will be given a timetable before your exams which will have your seat number for each exam so please ensure you know where you are sitting. A floor plan will be on display outside the Sports Hall.
The school employs external invigilators to conduct the examinations. Students are expected to behave in a respectful manner towards all invigilators and follow their instructions at all times.

If you are unable to collect your results we can email them to you or we can post them. You must give the Examinations Manager an email address or a stamped addressed envelope before the end of the summer term.
If you wish another person to collect results on your behalf, you must give written permission.
Unfortunately we are unable to give results over the phone.
Enquiries about Results
If you have any concerns regarding your results, you should contact either the Subject Leader or the Examinations Manager IMMEDIATELY. There are non-negotiable deadlines for Appeals so you must act quickly. Where a teacher supports a remark or return of scripts, the costs will be paid by the school, if not the costs will be the responsibility of the student.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE OUTCOME OF A RE-MARK MAY MEAN THAT YOUR ORIGINAL MARK MAY BE LOWERED.
You will be notified when certificates can be collected (usually after Christmas), it is your responsibility to arrange to collect them; we only need to keep them in school for 12 months then we can destroy them.
If you have any concerns regarding exams please do not hesitate to contact the Examinations Manager:
