Code of Conduct (Examinations)

BE ON TIME:

 It is your responsibility to get yourself to your examination room in plenty of time. You should aim to be there at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the examination.

KNOW WHERE YOUR SEAT IS:

  Please refer to the seating plan that is on the wall outside the examination room

NO MOBILE PHONES:

 You are strongly advised not to take your mobile phone into the examination room. If you are found with a mobile phone on your person you are likely to be disqualified from the examination. iPod’s, MP3 players etc. must be switched off and handed in to the centre manager.

ENTERING THE EXAM ROOM:

Please wait quietly outside the examination room until the invigilator calls you in. You will be told where to leave your bags and coat. Once you enter the room you are under examination conditions and there must be no communication with other candidates.

EQUIPMENT:

You are expected to provide all your own equipment for example pens, calculator, pencil etc. All pencil cases must be transparent. Calculator lids are not allowed on your desk.

DRINKS:

You are allowed to take into the examination room a drink in a clear plastic bottle with the label removed. You may also bring sweets without wrappers. Other food is not allowed.

START OF EXAMINATION:

The invigilator will go through the examination regulations. You will be asked to complete the front cover of your answer booklet. The information required to complete this will be on a card on your desk.

DURING THE EXAMINATION:

You must not communicate with any other candidate. If you require assistance, please put your hand up and an invigilator will attend to you. You will not be allowed to leave an examination room early even if you have finished.

END OF EXAMINATION:

You must remain silent until you leave the room. Please be aware that there may be other examinations in the room that are continuing.

MISCONDUCT:

Any breach of examination regulations will be reported to the relevant awarding body. This may result in disqualification from that examination, and possibly from other examinations you may take.
