Practical Examinations and Speaking Tests
These will normally be held in specialist rooms/buildings. Details of venues and times will be published well in advance.
These will normally be held in the Sports Hall, though a small number of students may take their exams in other locations as published. It is each student's responsibility to be at the correct venue, on time, for each exam.
Whilst some exams may start slightly earlier, our normal start times are: morning exams – 9:00 am & afternoon exams – 1.30 pm
- If you miss an exam, you CANNOT take it at a different time, so keep your timetable safe. You will be given a final personalised GCSE timetable that will include rooms and seat numbers.
- Unauthorised materials MAY NOT be taken into examination rooms. Bring only the basic equipment you need for each exam: black ink pen (NO OTHER COLOUR IS ALLOWED); ruler; pencil; rubber
- Mathematical instruments are needed for relevant examinations; calculators may be used in certain exams only
- Pencil must not be used for written answers. If you want to use a pencil-case, it MUST be completely see-through
- Gel pens, correcting pens and correction fluid, such as Tippex, are NOT ALLOWED.
