Summer Results Days
Results will not be emailed or given over the phone. If you are unable to collect your results and would like them to be sent home instead, please provide a self addressed / stamped envelope to the Exams Office. Likewise, if you are unable to collect your results in person, but would like someone else to collect on your behalf, you must provide a letter giving details of the person collecting, which must be signed by you.
My timetable is wrong – how do I change it?
If you think an exam is missing or if you’ve been entered for the wrong one, you will need to speak to your teacher or the Head of Department for that subject. The exams office can only change a student’s exam timetable on instruction from a member of the teaching staff.
Where will I be sitting and what time do I have to be there?
For every exam, the seating plans will be on display in the afternoon prior to each exam on the outside window of the learning managers’ office. It will also be displayed in the main hall on the morning of registration for the exam. Your timetable will show you the start time of the exam but you must be at the exam room AT LEAST 15 minutes before the start time.
I’ve got more than one exam at the same time – what happens?
You will usually be able to take one exam straight after the other but if this is not possible, the exams office will speak to you and arrange for one of your exams to be moved to earlier or later in the day – you will also be supervised between the exams to make sure the security of the exam is maintained.
What do I do if I’m late for my exam?
Firstly, don’t panic! If you arrive less than half an hour late, go straight to your exam room – the invigilators will make sure you can start your exam as soon as you arrive. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late, go to the Attendance Office and a member of staff will bring you to the exam room.
What if I am ill?
If you are ill before the exam, or after the exam has started, speak to Mrs Shelton or one of the invigilators. If you are too ill to come in for your exam, please let the exam office know before the exam or as soon as possible afterwards – if you are absent from an exam without valid reason, your parent/guardian may be charged for the cost of the exam entry.
