Exam Reminders

Ensure that you are prepared for your exams with all your tools for learning

You will need:

  • A blue or black pen
  • A pencil
  • A ruler
  • A rubber
  • A protractor
  • A pair compasses
  • A Calculator (if applicable)

When you are entering the room for an exam, it is very important that Exam Conditions are met. This means that you must follow these rules:

  1. Arrive at least 10 to 15 minutes before the start time for the exam
  2. Enter the room IN SILENCE
  3. Please remove from your bag any equipment you will be using during the exam before entering the exam room
  4. Put your bag in the designated area NOT BY YOUR DESK
  5. Sit at your desk and wait for further instructions IN SILENCE
  6. All mobile phones must be switched OFF not on Silent, and in your bag

When you are told to, at the end of the exam, stop writing. You must remain silent until your tutor has collected in all the papers and you have been told you can talk.

For the exams you will need a clear pencil case or you should put your pens in a small, clear plastic bag.  This is a requirement when you have public exams. If you follow these rules for the exam period, you will have a very smooth time and the week will go well for everybody.
