What happens if you are late or ill
This booklet gives you information about exams at
DCHS. Before you do anything else, please write
your name on the front, together with your
candidate number (make sure you know this). Then
take some time to read through it - we hope you
find it useful.
If you or your parents have any questions or need
help or advice at any time before, during or after
your exams, please contact the Exams Officer,
Mrs Kelly, in the school Exams Office. The school
telephone number is 01494 763296.
Here are some of the basics:
For each of your exam sessions you will be sent
a timetable showing the dates and times of all
your exams. Check it and let the Exams Office
know if you think it is wrong, then keep it safe!
Arrive at least fifteen minutes
before the start of each exam.
Make sure you have read the
�Information for Candidates’
notice on the exam noticeboards.
Exams: before, during & at the end
At the beginning of an exam, you must enter the exam
room IN COMPLETE SILENCE and fill the seats starting
with the front left corner of the room.
Listen carefully to instructions and notices read out by
the invigilators – there may be amendments to the exam
paper that you need to know about.
During all exams you must be completely SILENT and this
includes times when the exam papers are being given out
and collected in.
Any attempt to communicate will be regarded as cheating and you may be disqualified from all your exams.
If you need to ask a question, please put up your hand
and wait for an invigilator to come to you.
At the end of an exam you will be instructed to stop
writing, and you must put your pens down immediately.
You must remain seated until all the exam scripts have
been collected and checked.
You will be released from the exam room one row at a
time – leave quietly as there may be girls still writing.
There must be absolutely no talking until you are
completely clear of the exam room.
Remember - some exams may still be
going on and the rest of the school may
be in lessons so please be considerate.
What to bring (and what not
to bring) to an exam
What you SHOULD bring to an exam:
Please make sure that you only have the equipment
that you need for your exam, plus your exam card.
All your equipment – pens, pencils, rubber, ruler etc.
should be carried in a clear plastic bag. You should
leave the lids to your calculators in your bags. Make
sure your calculator has new batteries!
You may only use BLACK ink for exams (ink pen or biro).
What you should NOT bring to an exam:
Please leave all valuables such as
mobile phones, mp3 players and any
money in your lockers.
No mobile phones, ipods, mp3 players, coloured gel
pens, tippex or eraser pens or bags are allowed in
the exam room. You will be disqualified if you are
found with a mobile phone or ipod/mp3 player in the
exam room after the exam has started.
No food or drink, including water, is allowed.
What if you are late or ill?
It is extremely important to be punctual for your
exams because your work may not be accepted if
you are late. As well as this, late arrivals disturb
other candidates. If you are late due to
circumstances beyond your control you may still be
allowed to sit your exam. Please phone the school
office if you know you are going to be late. The
school telephone number is 01494 763296.
If you feel ill and are unable to come to school
please phone Matron or, if you are already at
School, see your form tutor or the Exams Officer.
If something goes wrong—for example you are ill
or have an accident at exam time but still sit the
exam, or if you are taken ill during an exam, you
should let the Exams Office or an invigilator know.
You will be given information about
where and when to collect your results.
Hopefully you will be delighted with your grades, but if
not you have a couple of options—re-marks and
Re-marks and copies of scripts
If your mark is near the top of a grade, you may decide
to have your paper re-marked. Please bear in mind that
marks can go up or down, and that most marks don’t
change. You can also request a copy of your exam
script. Forms requesting re-marks and/or scripts,
together with details of costs, are available from the
Exams Office, and strict deadlines apply.
You may decide to re-sit a paper at a later date. Again,
forms are available from the Exams Office, and in
almost all cases you will have to pay a fee.
Use textbooks - choose those that are relevant and
right for you.
Look at the resources and links on the
If you haven’t already done so, enrol on
the courses relevant to your subjects
and level. There are also plenty of
resources provided on the Examinations
and Revision page.
Ask your teachers for advice relating specifically to
their subject.
Years 10 and 11—don’t forget your PHSE booklet,
which contains advice on revision techniques.

Finally—don’t forget that the school Library has a
range of books suitable for revision. If you can’t find
what you need, Library staff are always
happy to try to obtain it for you.
