Before Exam

Please arrive at your exam venue 15 minutes before the start time of the exam. Start time AM – 9.15 start, PM 1.30 start Summer exams AM – 9.30 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.

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 on the College website (www.ccwhitby.co.uk).

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 may have to pay the examination fees.

Equipment
It is your responsibility to come to your exam with the correct equipment. Only black pens (not gel) are allowed. Maths packs (containing; scientific calculator, ruler, protractor, eraser, pencil, pen) are available now from the main office or the on-line shop on the College website. Do not bring your pencil case in to the exam unless it is totally see-through.

Mobiles/MP3s/Pagers etc.
Any equipment capable of transmitting or storing data is expressly forbidden. If you accidentally bring any of these items to College, make sure they are turned off and hand them to an invigilator for safe keeping.

Exam Conduct
Only the highest standard of behaviour is tolerated in the examination venues. Failure to comply may lead to exclusion from the exam venue and 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. Students will have to re-sit the whole course the following summer.
