Summer Examination Timetable

A provisional version of the Summer 2018 timetable will be published shortly.     

Notices to Candidates

All candidates should read the JCQ (Joint Council for Qualifications) Information for Candidates notices.  These notices give guidance to candidates on Written Examinations and Social Media.

The notices can be found below.

St Olave’s exam rules

All students must comply with uniform regulations when attending for examinations.

In accordance with exam board regulations no mobile phones or electronic devices are allowed in the exam room, these should be placed in a locker before the start of the exam.

Candidates may bring water into the exam room in a clear plastic bottle without a label.  Candidates may also bring a snack or sweets provided that these are in clear plastic bag, with no other wrapping, and do not contain nuts. 

Illness and other mitigating circumstances

Candidates who are ill before the start of an examination should email examsofficer@saintolaves.net immediately and speak to the exams officer by telephone (01689 820101) or in person no later than 45 minutes before the start of the exam.

It is normally best to sit an exam if feeling slightly unwell but infectious candidates may not be allowed to sit an exam and it may not be in a candidate’s best interest to sit an exam while very unwell.

Candidates should, where possible, obtain medical evidence of any illness.

Any candidate who feels unwell during an examination should notify the invigilator at the time.

Candidates experiencing other difficulties at the time of the examination should, if possible, notify the exams officer before the examination but at the latest within 24 hours of the exam.
