Key information about sitting examinations

  • Students are given Statements of Entry (including updated versions), which should have been checked by them to ensure that they are entered for the correct exams and tiers. They have an exam timetable telling them the exact time, room and seat number for each exam. They should check this with their Statements of Entry in case of any discrepancies. Please check and recheck, so that they don’t miss an exam. They will need to know their Candidate Number (“Exam number”).
  • If there are transport / illness problems students must phone the school attendance officer before the start of the examination and leave a message for the Exams office.
  • Candidates must be aware of the exams regulations which are on display inside and outside all exam rooms. Each student has received his/her own copy of these. In particular note that NO MOBILE PHONES OR OTHER ELECTRONIC ITEMS ARE ALLOWED IN EXAM ROOMS, whether or not they are switched off. The penalties for having a phone are severe.
