The students should come prepared for these sessions with books and pens etc If transport is an issue…speak to us
Typical day Morning Two hour revision slot for Geography If you don’t study Geography private revision at home Afternoon Another revision slot or an exam
Daily Routine School Uniform Must Be Worn! AM Exams – meet in Lecture Theatre at 8:40am unless indicated. PM Exams – meet in Lecture Theatre at 1:00pm unless indicated. The exam timetable says the exam starts at 9.30 and 1.30. These are start times and not arrival times
More Daily Routine… Students should check the wipeboard outside the lecture theatre – this will give reminders and key information. Seating plans and exam times will be posted outside the lecture theatre and exam rooms. Students will be met, and we have designed a structure that hopefully calms nerves but also prepares the students to do an exam
Illness or other problems If there is a problem contact us ASAP. You can leave a message for me or Mrs. Clifton on 01384 551000 or 01384 551023 If your child is ill we have two choices: come and have a go at the paper, sitting at the back or in a different room with the invigilators aware that the student is not well or we will need a Dr note if the student is not sitting the paper. If you are stuck in traffic, missed the coach, fell off a wheely bin or anything else we can help as long as you let us know.
Personal Exam Timetables Students should check exam timetables carefully. Speak to someone if you think there is an error. STRAIGHT AWAY. The earlier an error on an exam timetable is rectified – the better!!! IMPORTANT DOCUMENT – KEEP IT SAFE!! We will issue students with a couple of timetables – one could go in a prominent position at home!
