Important Exam Information 2023-24
Useful JCQ information documents for students:
General examination information for students:
- As part of the examination process, students will be informed of their moderated internal practical/coursework mark. Students must sign to say that they are aware of how these marks have been awarded and to authenticate that the work submitted is their own.
- Students should be at their exam venue 15 minutes before the published start time of their exam.
- Ensure students know what equipment they need for each exam, e.g. a calculator for those examinations requiring one. For EVERY exam, you must bring the following items (in a clear, un-coloured, pencil case):
- BLACK pens
- ruler (with millimetres)
- sharpener (one that catches the shavings)
- All students must be aware that mobile phones, watches, smart watches, Ipods, glasses cases, calculator lids and mathematical tins are not permitted in the examination venue, these are to be left in students’ bags in Art where they will be locked in a secure room. IF a student has a PHONE or a WATCH in the Examination venue then they are putting themselves at risk of getting a ZERO score for that Exam Paper / a U grade for all Subjects from that Exam Board. Mobile phones, smart watches, watches and iPods must be left in students’ bags which are kept in a secure room in our Art Block. The examination boards are very strict. Little Heath School cannot take responsibility for any phones, fitbits, smart watches, watches or Ipods that are lost, stolen or damaged.

Summer 2018 certificates
Students who sat their examinations in summer 2018 will need to collect their certificates by 31 December 2023.
