Be prepared for your exams

  • Have the right equipment. All students are responsible for brining their own equipment for use in their exams. This must be in a clear pencil case or plastic bag. We would suggest that all equipment is kept together and is brought to EVERY exam.
  •  BLACK PENS ONLY  (blue is not permitted), pencils, ruler, rubber, calculator, mathematical equipment - protractor, compass etc.
  • Know your seat number. Lists are displayed at least 2 days before the exam and ensure you are in the right seat.
  • Know what you are allowed to take into the exam ie water in a clear plastic bottle, label removed. No fizzy drinks.
  • If you have any concerns regarding your exams, see Mrs Wattam.
