If your child is ill on the day
Ring the college and ask to speak with Mrs Davis (Exams Officer). If she is unavailable, leave a message with Reception. Special consideration would not be applicable for students who have the opportunity to resit a unit or module at a later date. This is the policy of the exam board and not decided by the College
If your child has done paper 1 of an exam and is ill on the day of paper 2, then the board has a better picture of how your child will have performed and MAY award special consideration.
If your child is absent without any excuse (phone call from parent) then you will be charged for that exam.
If your child has broken any bones which may prevent them from writing, then please send them to the exams office and we will arrange for a scribe (someone to write for them) / word processor to be available for them.
The exams will commence promptly and any late arrivals must report immediately to the exams office where a decision will be made whether they will be able to sit the exam. If you are over half an hour late after the exam has started then the exam boards have to be informed and your child’s work may not be accepted by the board.
If your child arrives after the exam has finished then they will not be able to sit the exam and will not be awarded any marks for this.
All pupils MUST wear the correct uniform for all their exams except Years 12, 13 and 14.
Controlled assessments are not timetabled and take place in the classroom therefore all requests for holidays/absences within term time should be avoided.
All exams start in exam venue @ 9am
There are also controlled assessments taking place during months leading up to external exam dates and therefore holidays should not be planned prior to these dates and would need to be authorised.
The exam agreement outlines the need for equipment to be brought to each exam. Pens, calculators and maths sets will be provided for all examinations.
