Please note that students are NOT able to use Chromebooks in their external examinations, because, due to their set up, they do not meet JCQ (exam board) requirements. The students that are awarded this facility will be accommodated in IT suites in the summer.
It is not possible for the College to offer ‘typing’ as an option for students in their examinations at this point in time. All students that require this facility in the summer have already been identified and have the necessary evidence in place. Even though a student might use a typing aid as their ‘normal way of working’ in a lesson, it will NOT automatically mean it will be permitted for that student in their examinations.
We are required by JCQ to have a ’Word Processor Statement’ which explains how this additional arrangement is awarded to students – please see the attached for more information.
