Your examination timetable

Your examination timetable

  • What if there is an error on my statement of entry/examination timetable?

It is important that the details are correct and up-to-date on your statement of entry/examination timetable as these are the details the Examination Board will use when they issue your certificates. If you notice that an amendment needs to be made the Examinations office must be notified before the examination takes place. Any changes that are requested after this time will incur a charge from the Examinations boards.

  • When will I receive my examination timetable?

Timetables are normally sent approximately 4 weeks before your first examination via your tutor. You will be asked to sign to confirm that you have received it.

  • What if I have a clash on my examination timetable?

If you notice that you have a clash on your examination timetable you must notify the Examinations office immediately. If there are two or more examinations in a session (morning or afternoon) the school will decide the order in which you will sit the examinations. You will get a short supervised break between the examinations.

If you are taking two or more examinations in a session and the total time is more than three hours including extra time and/or supervised rest breaks, the school will arrange for you to sit one of the examinations in a later or earlier session within the same day. You will be supervised between the sessions and are not permitted to use your mobile or any other electronic devices or talk to anyone; you may use the time to revise if you wish to do so. It is extremely important for you to notify the Examinations office as early as possible otherwise we will not be able to make the necessary arrangements for you.

  • What if the total time of my examinations exceeds 5 hours 30 minutes at GCSE or 6 hours at GCE and I have been entered for three or more examinations timetabled for the same day?

If this is the case, it is your responsibility to notify the Examinations office. We will apply for special consideration to the Examination Board and you will receive allowance on the last paper taken on that day.
