To ensure that students are prepared for their actual GCSE exams, throughout KS4, there are several times where planned practice exams take place. These are published within the parent handbooks sent out at the start of September and on the parent App key dates.
For each examination, including the practice exams, students are given a personalised timetable indicating the time, length and location of each exam as well as their seat number.
It is essential that students record a note of the time, location and seat number of each exam, as these are different for different exams.
Students are expected to arrive at the exam location 10 minutes before the start time of the exam
To meet with the JCQ expectations, all electronic equipment, including mobile phones will be handed in before the start of the exam, pencil cases need to be transparent and clear bottles of water with no label are allowed.
