Examination Information

Mock Exams Years 10-13

To help prepare students for the public examinations, we conduct Mock exams in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 under full examination conditions with external invigilators who run and supervise these exams. Students are given a personalised copy of their mock exam timetable to inform them of the date, subject, location, start time, duration, and seat number.

Exam Schedule Summer 2018

Public examinations take place during May and June each year. However, controlled assessments and practical elements of a qualification may be taken outside of these months and students will be informed of these in advance. Students are given a personalised timetable of all their summer examinations including the examination name, level, date, time and duration. Students must check these carefully to ensure they are entered for correct examinations and notify the Exams Officer immediately if they have any questions or concerns. Students are responsible to ensure they arrive at all examinations on the correct day and in plenty of time.

    Preparing for Examinations

    Public examinations can be a stressful time for both students and their families. However, much can be done to minimise the effect of stress. Students in Years 11 to 13 will receive advice and support from the exams department and from their form tutors. If students or parents have specific concerns they should speak to the Head of Year (Year 11), Head of Sixth Form (Years 12-13) or directly to the Exams Officer.
