Start Times:Trial Exam Procedures

  • AM trial exams – 8.55 students should report straight to the exam hall
  • PM trial exams – 1.45 students should report straight to the exam hall

Please note: Students arriving by train should, on arrival at College, place their coats, bags and mobile phones in their lockers and go straight to their exam venue

Equipment:

Students should bring the correct equipment to all exams

  • Black pen
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Calculator (when required)

Bags are not allowed in the exam hall
Mobile Phones are not allowed in the exam hall

We will do everything we can to make this a stress free experience. You can help yourself by understanding the following:

Uniform
Uniform must be worn by Year 10 and Year 11 for all exams.

Before Exam
Check the seating plan for your seat before arriving at the exam. These are always displayed in S block in advance.

Arriving at the Exam Venue
Please arrive at your exam venue 10 minutes before the start time of the exam. Exam Start Time AM – 9.00 start, PM 1.30 start.
You must wait quietly outside the exam venue until told to enter by an invigilator.

Entering the Exam Venue
When you enter the exam venue you must remain silent. You will be directed to your desk where you will find your own candidate card which has your name, candidate number and the exam you are taking on. You will need this information when completing the front page of your examination paper. You must write your name on the front of your exam paper exactly as it is written on your candidate card.

Timetable
You will receive your own individual timetable showing the date and time of your exams, your seat number and exam venue. KEEP IT SAFE. A copy of the College exam timetable can be found above.

Venue
Going to the wrong exam venue can be very stressful. Avoid this by checking where your exam is due to take place the night before.

Absence
If you are absent on the day of an examination telephone the College as soon as possible. You will need an official ‘Doctors Note’ otherwise you will have to pay the examination fees. Resit exams will not be available, therefore if you miss an exam your overall mark will be affected.

Equipment
It is your responsibility to come to your exam with the correct equipment. You MUST use a BLACK ink pen (gel pens are not allowed). Exam stationery packs cost £1.10 (containing; 3 x black pens, 2 x pencils, 1 x 6” ruler, 1 x eraser, 1 x  sharpener, 1 x clear plastic pencil case) and scientific calculator cost £8.20 are available now from the main office. Do not bring your pencil case in to the exam unless it is totally see-through.

Mobile Phones, Smartwatches, ipods, MP3/4 players etc.
Any equipment with an electronic communication/storage device or digital facility is expressly forbidden. If you accidentally bring any of these items to an exam, make sure they are turned off and hand them to an invigilator. Items are left at the owners risk, the College accepts no responsibility for loss or damage to items handed in.
Due to changes in JCQ guidelines, students will now be required to remove any watches, bracelets and charity bands and place them on their desk, in clear view of the invigilators. If these items are valuable we recommend that students leave them at home on the day of their exam.

Exam Conduct
Only the highest standard of behaviour is tolerated in the examination venues. Failure to comply may lead to exclusion from the examination venue and zero marks being awarded in some circumstances.
Communication in any form and in any way with other candidates is strictly forbidden. Inappropriate language, words, phrases or comments written on exam papers may also result in zero marks being awarded in some circumstances.

Water
Water is vital to an efficient working brain. Bring some to your exam but only in a CLEAR bottle.

New Linear Rules for GCSEs
All units must now be taken at the end of the course. Examinations are only available in the summer on the timetabled day and time. If a student misses one unit they will not get their predicted grade.

Social Media
We all like to share our experiences when taking examinations. However, it is important to consider what you say. Your comments may lead to an investigation for malpractice and result in the application of a penalty.
Awarding bodies monitor social media and websites. They do not wish to see candidates jeopardise their marks or grades as there are significant consequences for anyone caught breaching the rules for examinations, controlled assessment or coursework.

Hints and Tips for Revising

  • never leave revision to the last minute
  • find yourself a quiet place to revise where there will be no distractions
  • write yourself good revision notes
