Year 11 Examinations

Operational Arrangements:

Students in Year 11 will be taking their final examinations during May and June. These examinations will be run formally according to the official JCQ Exam Board regulations. Students should prepare themselves fully and aim to do the very best they can. 

Further details about the arrangements for these exams are shown below however it is very important that students take in to the examination all the equipment that they need, including black pens, pencils, maths equipment and calculator.  Please carefully read the student’s letter below.

Seating Plan and Room Layout: The plan below shows the desk layout of the main exam hall.  Please use the correct entry door.

Hall seating layout

Student Seating List: Each student is assigned a desk in the exam hall or other room for each exam.  A printed version, including student names and “Candidate Number” is posted up on the Exams Notice Board in the Foyer.  The online lists, linked from each day in the schedule below, has no names so students will need to check and remember their candidate number from the list in the Foyer.

Student Information Letter: This includes all operational guidance and instructions for students. A printed version, with the exam timetable, has been provided for each student. The individual exam timetable will also include the seat and room for each exam.

Late arrivals: Students are expected to arrive at the exam room at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the exam. Being on time for exams is important as late arrivers distract students in exams and is very worrying and unsettling for the student arriving late.  If a student is late to an exam they will be met outside the exam room and provided the introductions needed there, before being invited in silently to start their exam.  Exam doors will be closed by the invigilators 5 minutes before the scheduled start time for the exam.  This gives time for all the announcements and preparations to be completed properly before the exam starts.

Equipment Shop: Students should know exactly what equipment they need for each exam and carry this in with them to the exam room.  The invigilators have some spares for swaps, only, if necessary.  The Registry Office runs a shop where pens and calculators may be purchased.
