~~KEY INFORMATION - EXAMINATIONS
Please note that the start time for morning examinations is 9.00 am and afternoon examinations start at 1.30 pm. It is the student’s responsibility to be ready to enter the examination room at least 15 minutes before the start time. If a student is unable to sit an examination on medical grounds, a medical note obtained from his /her doctor on the day of the examination must confirm this. Failure to attend an examination for any other reason will result in the school issuing an invoice for the costs incurred.
Students will need to be in full school uniform and bring with them a clear, see through pencil case with two black pens, a pencil, ruler, highlighter and eraser. They will also need calculators and mathematical equipment for some examinations. Students have to stay for the duration of each examination and cannot leave early.
The school has a responsibility to make sure students are aware of the JCQ regulations that govern all GCSE examinations. These documents are available to view on the school website. Please ensure that your son/daughter reminds themselves of these regulations before their first examination takes place.
Wrist watches have to be removed and placed on the desk. Items not allowed into the examination room include Mobile phones, Smartwatches and any other electrical device. The school has no choice but to report to the examination board students who fail to abide by this rule and they will receive zero marks for that paper. Examination boards can ban students from sitting subsequent examinations with them if further infringements occur
