Summary of Examination Regulations

  • If you miss an exam, you CANNOT take it at a different time.  So highlight your own exams and keep your master timetable safe. You will be given an individual timetable later.
  • Unauthorised materials MAY NOT be taken into examination rooms. Bring only the basic equipment you need for each exam.
  • Basic equipment: black ink pen (NO OTHER COLOUR ALLOWED); ruler; HB pencil (only for diagrams and computer forms); rubber.
  • Pencil must not be used for written answers.  If you want to use a pencil-case, it must be see-through.
  • Gel pens, correcting pens and correction fluid, such as Tippex, are NOT ALLOWED.
  • Mathematical instruments are needed for relevant examinations.
  • Calculators may be used in certain tests only – you must know which ones!
  • You must NOT take calculator lids, instructions for using your calculator or calculator formulae into an exam room.
  • Latecomers may be admitted into an examination if there is a genuine reason, but it WILL be reported to the exam board. Be warned that the exam board has the right to refuse your script.
  • If you are taken ill during an examination, or miss one through illness, please provide a doctor’s medical certificate as soon as possible, so that we may ask the board for special consideration on your behalf.
  • You are all reminded again that mobile phones, MP3 players and all other electronic devices must not be on your person.  If you choose to take them into an exam room, they must be completely switched off and in your bag.  You risk being disqualified not only from the exam in progress, but from all your other exams, too. The exam boards will accept NO EXCUSES.
  • Examinations start when you enter the room and end when the last exam paper has been collected.  You must not do anything between those times to communicate with another candidate or to cause any kind of disturbance in the room.
  • If you have two exams timetabled at the same time, special arrangements will be made, which will probably involve supervised separation from other candidates in order to preserve exam security.
  • You must read and follow all the instructions printed on the front of question papers
  • It is your responsibility to comply with examination regulations – breaking them through ignorance is not an excuse!
