This is your own personalised timetable and will show you exactly when and where you will sit each exam. Check it carefully and make sure all of your subjects are listed.
Bring at least two BLACK biro pens and check whether any specialist equipment is required e.g. calculators, maths set etc. Equipment should be in a CLEAR pencil case.
Any unauthorised items e.g. glasses cases, pencil cases that are not see-through, calculator lids and instructions etc should be left in your bag.
During Your Exams
Arrive at the exam room at least 15 minutes before the start of exam.
Notices listing exam rules and regulations are displayed inside and outside the exam room. They are also attached to your exam timetable. MAKE SURE YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THEM.
You are under exam conditions from when you enter the exam room. Find your seat quickly so that the exam can start on time. Do not communicate with other candidates in the room.
Make sure your mobile phone, iPod, MP3 etc is switched off and left in your bag. If any of these items are found in your possession during an exam, WHETHER IT IS SWITCHED ON OR NOT, you will be disqualified from the exam.
No food is allowed in the exam room. You may bring in a bottle of water as long as the bottle is clear and the label has been removed. Remember that toilet breaks are only allowed in an emergency, and must be supervised.
If you have a problem during the exam, raise your hand and wait for the invigilator to come to you. Invigilators cannot answer any questions about the content of the exam paper.
You will not be allowed to leave the exam room before the end of the exam. If you finish early go back and check your answers.
If you are unable to attend an exam call the school and let the Exams Office know. You will be charged for exams missed without a good reason.
