Exam details for Parents and Candidates

Candidate Number

Each candidate has their own candidate number which they must learn. This will be used on each exam paper and can be found on their Exam Timetable and Statement of Entry.

Timetable Clashes

Please alert the Examinations Officer if you have a clash of exams exceeding 3 hours. A letter will be sent home detailing the new arrangements.  Students must be supervised at all times when in a clash situation to avoid any breach of security.

JCQ Information for candidates

Students will be given a copy of the following  Warning Notices:

Exam Equipment

Students must arrive in the Exam Room with the correct equipment for the exam they are sitting.  Equipment must be kept in a clear pencil case or plastic bag. Students should write in black ink – no gel pens as these do not scan properly.

Mobile Phones & Electronic Gadgets

We advise that students do not bring phones, mP3 players etc into the Exam Room.  If they do they must be turned off and placed in the plastic wallets provided by the invigilator.


Only water (no fruit juice or fizzy drinks) can be brought into the Exam room. Bottles must be clear and have their labels removed.  Food is not allowed in the Exam room.

Arrival Time

Exams start at 9.00 a.m. for morning sessions and 1.45 for afternoon sessions. Students should arrive 15 minutes before these times. If the student is going to be unavoidably late please contact the school. If students arrive after 9.30 in the morning or 2 p.m. in the afternoon their paper may not be accepted by the Exam Board. If you study with one of the consortium schools you will sit your paper at the school you study as unless you have been advised otherwise. Please make a note of the start times at Sandringham and Beaumont.

Seating Plans

Seating Plans will be displayed in the Canteen Quad on the day of the exam.  Please note where you are sitting to avoid any confusion in the exam room.
