You will be permitted to use a calculator for some of your exams. You are responsible for making sure that your calculator meets the awarding bodies' regulations. Please read the following information sheet for detailed guidance.
Mobile Phones & Other Devices
It is advisable to leave mobile phones, smart watches, regular watches, iPods, MP3/4 or similar and notes at home on a day when you have exams. If this is not possible, then you need to leave them in your school bag which will be stored securely in a holding room. If you still have any of these items on you when you enter the exam room, you must hand them into an invigilator.
People often like to share experiences when taking examinations. However, it is important to consider very carefully what you say online as comments could lead to an investigation for malpractice or incurred penalties. Please read the following guidelines to help you write posts and comment safely, without breaking examination rules.
