If you have a clash then see Mr Walton-Jones asap to arrange an alternative time.
During exam week students need only attend school for their exams (or for Art/Hospitality 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 exam venue within the first 45 minutes
- No student can leave the exam venue within the last 15 minutes
- No student can just get up and go – there are strict rules around returning papers
- Students may leave the school grounds on completion of their exam so other classes are not disturbed. Students must bring QUIET STUDY to complete in E1 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 exam venues
- Students driving themselves must have completed the usual paperwork. See Mr Walton-Jones.
- 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 exam room
- No wristwatches to be worn.
