Examinations 

The government has announced its intention for exams to return in Summer 2022. This will replace teacher assessed grades which have been used for Summer 2020 and 2021 exams. 

Year 11 and 13 students are now in the final stages of their studies and will shortly be taking these main examinations.  They should be spending the majority of their free time on revision, which is crucial to success in the examinations.

We would like to advise you of several points concerning the GCSE and A level examinations:

a.       Students must arrive for examinations at the following times:

Morning examinations             -        8.40am for an 8.50am start

Afternoon examinations          -        12.40pm for a 12.50pm start.

Students will be issued with individual timetables which show their candidate number and seat number for each examination.  A copy will be emailed to all students and a paper copy will also be issued. This should be kept in a safe place and is brought to each examination.  Seat numbers will also be displayed outside the entrance to the examination room and outside the examinations office.

b.       Most examinations will take place in the sports hall, but some examinations will be scheduled in other rooms. Please refer to individual timetables nearer the time.

c.       Once instructed to enter the examination room, students should ensure that they remain silent, place their bags at the side of the room, where indicated, and quickly take their seats.

d.       There are strict rules governing behaviour in examinations and examination boards reserve the right to withdraw ALL papers taken by a student found to be engaging in unfair practice.  Notices concerning behaviour will be displayed prominently both outside and inside examination rooms.

e.       Once an examination has started, students will only be allowed to leave the room before the end of the examination in the most extreme cases (eg. illness). Toilet visits must be made before the examination and it would be very rare for a student to be allowed to go to the toilet during a public examination unless students have associated medical conditions.

f.        Drinking water will be allowed in exams and students should bring their own water in a suitable clear bottle, without any labels. Bottles with labels or coloured bottles will not be permitted.

g.       Students must be present, in good time for all examinations. In the unlikely event that a student is ill and unable to attend an examination, it is important that you let the Academy know immediately.  We are yet to be made aware of the arrangements for students who have COVID during an examination and we will keep you notified. For all other medical absences you must obtain a medical certificate from your doctor  and hand this in to the Academy within 48 hours of the examination. There is no provision by examination boards for the examination to be taken at another time so it is important that no examinations are missed. Grades will be adversely affected by missed examinations

h.       If a student fails to turn up for an examination to which they are entered, you will be asked to pay the entry fee for that examination. Additionally, any student missing an examination, other than for certified illness as above, may not be allowed to attend the prom or the year 11 celebration day.

i.        Please keep any belongings you bring to the examination to a minimum, as an equipment pack will be provided.  A calculator is essential for Mathematics, Science and Business Studies and you should bring your own scientific one with you as only basic standard ones will be provided by the Academy.

j.        Ideally, mobile phones, any type of wrist watch and any other electrical devices should be left at home.  Otherwise they should be switched off and left in bags.  Please note, watches must not be worn in examinations. If a phone rings whilst in a bag or if a student is found with one in their pocket, it is very likely that the student will be disqualified from that examination and possibly others. Lanyards should not be worn and should be placed in bags before entering the examination room.
