TAKING THE WRONG EXAM!
• The entrance for the gym is the main door, via
the covered area near the PE store room.
• Bring the minimum of personal possessions as
all bags and coats must be left at the side –
you cannot take them to the desk with you.

– Session one – arrive by 08:30
– Session two – arrive by 11:00
– Session three – arrive by 13:55
There will be some days when you might have
three exams – sorry!
Remember though, you are on study leave
during these nine days, so when you don’t have
an exam, you do not have to be in school.
You should be revising when you are not here.
In the Exam Room
• You are SILENT from the time you enter until
you have left the room.
• Eyes front
• Focus on your own space and the task ahead
• Get your timings right – you can’t leave until
the exam is over even if you finish early
• If you arrive after the exam has started, you will
not be allowed in to sit the exam. BE PUNCTUAL.
• If you arrive in incorrect uniform, you will not be
allowed in to sit the exam.
• If you attempt to communicate with any other
candidate, in any way once you have entered the
exam room, you will be disqualified.
• If you engage in any form of malpractice (eg
talking, disrupting others, plagiarism) you will be
Ensure you bring all the materials you will need for the exam:

All your equipment must be in a CLEAR pencil
case or plastic bag.
Electronic/digital data storage devices
You are not permitted to bring any
mobile data storage device into the
– Mobile phones
– MP3 players
If you must bring any of these items into school with you, they
must be handed in before you enter the exam – Ms Chadwick
and/or Ms Manders will be there to collect them.
It will make the process quicker (and you’ll get your
stuff back more efficiently at the end) if you get
yourself an envelope with your name and form on it
that you can hand in at the start of each exam,
containing your electronic device(s).
More candidates are disqualified in the
UK each year for malpractice incidents
involving electronic devices than any
other – don’t be part of that statistic.
Absence through Illness/
• If you are ill, ring into school to inform us as early as
• If there is an emergency that you think will prevent
you getting in, ring school.
Your alarm not going off is NOT an emergency – have a back up alarm!
Missing the bus is NOT an emergency – leave in time to get the bus
earlier than you normally would.
Misreading your timetable is (while unfortunate) NOT an emergency –
read it more carefully!
• Plan your revision carefully
• Eat, sleep and exercise well during this time;
some of these days will be tough going – keep
• If you are anxious about anything at all in the lead
up to the exams, or during, speak to someone
• A few of you also have BTEC public exams during
this time (Construction and Media students);
these exams are on Friday 9th January. Make sure
you are prepared for these too.
• Give 100% in all of your exams.
• There will be a Results afternoon on Monday 2nd
February in which you’ll be given your results envelopes.
• This will be a great opportunity for you to get a clear
indication of what your outcomes might be in the
summer, so make these exams count.
All the very best.
