  •  

    What do you need to know a few weeks before?

    You will have been given the following information, which you will need to read:

  • Statement of Entry, confirming the exams you are entered for.
  • Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) Notice to Candidate
  • Contingency Notice

  •  

    Things to think about!

  • Outdoor clothes such as coats, scarves, gloves etc, are not permitted in the exam room, so wear an extra layer if the weather is cold.
  • We conduct the exams in a school and a certain level of noise is to be expected. We do our best to keep this to a minimum, but this is occasionally unavoidable.
  • Keep the amount of personal possessions, including bags and mobile phones, to a minimum, as there is limited space in the exam room to store these.
  • Remember to bring the necessary equipment to every exam such as pens, pencils, calculator, etc. all of which must be in a clear pencil case. Water needs to be in a clear bottle with all the labels removed.

  •  

    On The Day


    Outside of the exam room:

     

  • Please arrive a minimum of 30 minutes before the start of the exam. This allows time for toilet visits, to get to the exam room, the storing of personal provisions and the issuing of pre-exam instructions.
  • If you will be delayed in getting to the exam, please ring HYA Training reception (01482 211778) and they will get a message to the exam invigilator(s).
  •  

    In the exam room:

     

  • There are various checks that the invigilators need to complete to comply with JCQ regulations. These include completing attendance registers and seating plans, walking the room to check everyone has completed their details on the front of the exam paper and periodically checking for malpractice.
  • They may also need to leave the room if there is a question only the Exams Officer can answer or if a student needs specific assistance. If you have a query, please raise your hand, do not call out.
  • We will do everything we can to ensure that you sit your exam under optimum conditions, including noise and temperature, and we will endeavour to deal with any questions as promptly as possible.
