Senior Examinations (1-4 Sept)


Morning examinations run from 9-12 noon (be there by 8.45am) and afternoon examinations from 1-4pm (be there by 12.45pm) unless otherwise stated.

All examinations will be in classes (Assemble outside E1 on the examination day to see the allocated rooms).

Time has been allocated for Tourism, YES, BCON, Te Reo, Drama, DVC, Hospitality and  Visual Art students to be in school with their teacher for extended periods of time. These sessions are compulsory for senior tourism, YES, BCON, te reo, drama, dvc, art and hospitality students. 

If you have a clash then please notify Mr McCartney to arrange an alternative time.

During examinations week students need only attend school for their examinations (or non-examination sessions time) BUT if we are to  match the way the system works for the ”real thing” in November/December then students MUST follow these steps.

  • No student can leave the examination venue within the first 45 minutes
  • No student can leave the examination venue within the last 15 minutes
  • No student can just get up and go – there are strict rules around returning papers
  • Students must bring QUIET STUDY to complete in E1, MP1 or other designated venue e.g. Art students can go to Room 19.  It is always a frustration when students do not use their time well and disturb others’ learning.
  • Students MUST wear normal school uniform
  • No food, gum or drink (except water) in the examination venues
  • Students driving themselves must have completed the usual paperwork.
  • Equipment must be in clear, pencil cases (plastic bags are really good)
  • No toilet exits – go before you enter
  • Mobile phones must be switched off in the examination room
  • No wristwatches to be worn.
