March GCSE Mock Exam Timetable

The Exam Summer Series '24 (GCSE, BTEC, Cambridge National, AS, and A- level national exams) will start as scheduled on the below exam timetable, which runs from Thursday 9/5/24 through to Friday 21/6/24 (inclusive). Students and parents are also advised that three additional days, up to Wednesday 26/6/24, have also been marked as Contingency Days for exams, if any are unable to run for any unforeseeable circumstance. At present, classes will run as normal where there is no timetabled exam, and students should arrive at school at the normal start of day time.

The overall timetable is posted as a PDF Link at the bottom of this page: Exam Timetable Summer Series '24.

All candidates should have received and checked their individual timetables for public exams issued by exam boards, either through tutor groups, email, or both. Students who have timetabled clashes have had their individual timetable amended, and will need to isolate on the day - instructions will be given on the day to support this. Individual timetables only covers public exams issued by exam boards, and does not include non-timetabled assessments arranged and communicated through school departments (such as speaking exams, coursework, and components such as BTEC controlled assessments or practicals [art, music, drama, DT etc.]).

The majority of exams will take place in the Sports Hall. Room 044 will be the withdrawal room for candidates who would otherwise have their exam in the Sports Hall. Candidates with specific and agreed Access Arrangements who take their exams within the SEND department will need to report to the SEND department. If your arrangements differ from this, you will be contacted individually. Music exams will take place in Room 123 and 121. GCSE Media Studies Paper 2 will be sat in Room 104. GCSE Spanish and French Listening Exams will take place on the top floor of A Block. These are the same arrangements as in previous practice exams.

Information for students, parents and carers:

It is the candidates responsibility to be on time in correct location. Check the timetable so you are familiar with it, and keep a copy somewhere handy. You should be present outside of your allocated exam room at least 15 minutes prior to its start time. Misreading your timetable is not a valid reason.

Most exams will take place in the Sports Hall (unless indicated otherwise on the timetable). Students who have withdrawal, as part of their agreed access arrangements, will be in 044 (for exams scheduled in Sports Hall only), or working with an allocated member of the SEND department.

All students are expected to bring their own equipment. This is the candidates responsibility, and it may disadvantage you if you do not have the correct materials. Students should contact their subject teacher if they are unsure of the materials they need for an exam.

All water bottles, rulers and pencil cases need to be transparent, and where calculators are permissible, lids must be removed. Mobile phones must be switched off and powered down. No watches or electronic devices are permitted, unless part of agreed access arrangements (e.g. medical need). Nothing should be in students' pockets, and no notes are permitted. Students may bring bags with them on the day, but these will need to be placed according to invigilators instructions and not taken to tables.
