Regulations Water bottles are allowed in the exam room but must have their labels removed. You must not have anything written on your hands or arms. You must leave the exam room in silence; there may be other students sitting longer exams in the same room as you.
Invigilators In every exam there will be members of staff invigilating. Go to the toilet before the exam but if you do need to go during the exam raise your hand and an invigilator will accompany you to the toilet. If you are concerned about anything or need anything during the exam do not look around or attempt to communicate with other students. Raise your hand and an invigilator will help you. It is too late to do anything after the exam is finished so please make your concerns known at the time.
Special Consideration If something happens which may affect your performance in your examinations – illness, bereavement, etc – please make sure that you inform Miss Rheumer as you may qualify for special consideration.
