IMPORTANT EXAM INFORMATION

  • Please learn your candidate number, this is the 4 digit number printed on the top of your exam timetable.
  • Check where your exam desk is before every exam. Your seat number will be indicated on your exam timetable. The seating plan will also be available in the BEST area prior to each exam.
  • Please ensure you are at LEAST 10 minutes early for all your exams and line up outside the hall in an orderly manner. Sometimes there are special instructions that need to be read out and once the exam has started we cannot disturb everyone else by repeating any messages over the speaker system.
  • Check when you sit down that it is your name on the desk. If you can’t find your name ask an invigilator.
  • If you think you have the wrong paper, raise your hand and wait for an invigilator. NEVER remove an exam paper from a desk.
  • Always ensure you have the right equipment for each exam i.e. pens, pencils, calculators, etc. Pencil cases need to be clear plastic only.
  • The only drink allowed inside the exam hall is water. This must be in a clear bottle with any labels removed.
  • If for any reason you are going to be late for an exam, please call the school as soon as possible.
  • Ideally do not bring a mobile phone or smartwatch with you, but if you do it cannot be about your person. It must be stored away from you desk in your bag or with an invigilator. Every year we have papers cancelled because we find mobile phones on students during exams. Even if it is switched off – even if the SIM card is out – YOUR PAPER WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.
  • Please make sure you wear full school uniform to every exam.
  • All wristwatches must be removed and placed on the the exam desk.
