Every student needs a clear pencil case containing: black pens, pencils, eraser. The school will provide a protractor, compass and calculator for use for each exam.

It is very important that mobile phones are never taken into the exam room even if switched off. This is considered malpractice and has to be reported to the exam boards with the risk of disqualification.

What should I do if my son/daughter feels unwell?

There will not be another opportunity to sit the exam and so wherever possible students should attend the examination. Any absence for illness will require a medical note from a GP. In an emergency, please contact the attendance team as early as possible or ask to speak to the Examinations Officer.
