The Sele School

Examinations  

We wish every student great success in their Examinations and trust that thorough preparation will be undertaken. On this page and other related pages, you will find a wealth of information that we hope will be of assistance in preparing for and sitting Examinations.

Please follow the links for the The Sele School Examinations Policy and Exam Contingency Plan. Additional policies referred to in the Examinations Policy can be obtained on request from the Examinations Officer, Mrs Savage.

Public examinations have to be conducted according to JCQ rules and regulations. You can find documents outlining these rules and regulations by following the JCQ links below; other helpful information is also available on this website:

It is important that all of our students fully understand these rules and abide by them at all times. Among other things, there are several regulations relating to stationery that is permitted in the exam room; please see the stationery list page of the website. All students will need to have the correct equipment for their exams as this will not be provided for them.

It is imperative that students arrive in good time for each examination. If a problem arises on the day, which may cause a student to be late, please contact the school immediately to advise Mrs Savage of the issue.

If on the day of the examination a student is too ill to attend; you must notify school immediately and send in a medical certificate from a GP within one week of the examination missed. Failure to do so will result in you incurring the cost of the examination. Special considerations may be taken to the Board as a result of illness, but it is at the Examination Board’s discretion whether they will consider any request we might make.

Please note: No mobile phones, no watches or bracelets of any kind and no potential technological/web enables sources of information are permitted in the examination room.

Water bottles - must be made of clear, transparent material (i.e. glass or plastic), with all labels removed.

We cannot be responsible for the safety of mobile phones or watches and advise that they are left in lockers, locked away, rather than in bags outside the examination room. Phones and watches cannot be given to the invigilators for safe keeping.

There will be clocks in the examination rooms to assist students with timings of answers and to ensure no student is disadvantaged.

If you have any questions or queries regarding the examinations, please do not hesitate to contact the Examinations Officer, Mrs Savage.
