Exams Information

Please see below for important Examination information, documents and timetables

Please note that due to external factors, exam timetables are subject to small changes so we recommend that students and parents should be mindful of this and check the school website for the most updated version.

Exam success hints and tips for students:

  1. Arrive 15 mins to 30 mins prior to the start of the exam. Refrain from bringing mobile phones, digital watches and/or any type of electronic communication or storage device into the exam room. If found in possession during an examination (even if it is turned off) we are obliged to report the infringement to the awarding body.
  2. IDs must be placed face up on the exam table next to the seat number so that the invigilator can check them without disturbing students.
  3. Water bottles must be clear of any markings or labels.
  4. Ensure you have all the correct equipment before your exams. For Mathematics and Science exams, students should ensure their calculators conform to examinations regulations. The cover should be removed and left with your possessions. ENSURE YOU HAVE NEW BATTERIES.
  5. Do not draw graffiti or write offensive comments on examination papers – if you do the examination board may refuse to accept your paper.
  6. Please do not write on examination desks. This is regarded as vandalism and you will be asked to pay for the repair/ cleaning.
  7. Students are expected to behave in a respectful manner towards all invigilators and follow their instructions at all times.
  8. As most of the exams are quite long, it is advisable that you have a snack and preferably a bottle of water (without the label)  with you if you have more than one exam in one day. Please note you cannot eat in the exam hall but you are allowed a bottle of water.
