For all public examinations you will have been issued an individual Exam Timetable.
On the individual exam timetable you will need to check:
Please also on the Individual Exam Timetable you will need to check that you do not have any exam clashes and to make a final check that you have been entered for all relevant examinations.
Once students arrive in the examination hall they must follow exam regulations which include:
Black pen (students are only allowed to write in black pen. Many of the scripts are scanned onto a computer for marking)
Calculators are allowed for some exams but they must not have lids with instructions; students will need to leave those at home or hand in the lids at the beginning of the exam.
Eraser, ruler and pencil. Any pencil case taken into the examination room must be see-through
Students may not use any correcting pens, fluid or tape or highlighters in their answers.
It is always useful to have a spare black pen and pencil.
Make sure you:
We recommend that unless you have a very serious medical condition that you always attend public examinations.
If you are ill on the day of a public examination contact the College's Examinations Officer immediately by calling reception on 020 7237 1928 and stating clearly that you are unable to attend a public examination.
Get your parent/carer to take you to the doctor straight away and ask for a medical certificate or letter explaining your illness. In rare circumstances of serious illness awarding bodies may provide 'special consideration' when the examination has not been sat. Claims for special consideration due to medical conditions must be made to the awarding body supported by appropriate evidence from a Doctor within 5 days of the exam.
Remember these are public examinations and if you miss an exam you cannot take it on another day.
