Parents - during the exam period:
Try to ensure that:
- Your daughter/son gets a good night’s sleep before exams.
- They know the start times of every exam that they are taking that day.
They have all the equipment they need:
- At least 2 new black pens (blue pens are not allowed in JCQ controlled examinations), and 2 sharp pencils;
- a rubber;
- a ruler.
Sometimes they may also need:
- a calculator (A Level Maths, GCSE Maths Paper 2, and all science exams allow calculators);
- a protractor;
- a compass;
- coloured pencils.
Pencil cases must be transparent.
Please also note:
Water is allowed in clear bottles with labels removed (no fizzy and no squash).
Sweets are only allowed in clear plastic bags, and without wrappers.
If your son/daughter is too ill to take their exam
Inform us immediately by leaving a message with Jo in the office by telephone on 01797 222545 for the Exams Officer;
Take your son/daughter to their GP, explain that your daughter/son is too ill to take their exam and ask for a certificate or a note.
Ensure that the certificate is sent to the school as soon as possible, addressed to the Exams Officer with a covering note from you.
The school will then apply to the exam board for special consideration. In this way your son/daughter may gain a mark for the missed exam. Please note that this is not guaranteed and if granted will be an average assessed on your daughter/son’s previous performance.
GCE exam results day is Thursday 16th August, and GCSE results day is Thursday 23rd August. The Studio will be open to students to pick up their GCE results. GCSE results day will be held in Rye College.
