Important information about sitting public exams

Make sure you take a look at all the documents listed on this page before sitting your public exams and read the most up-to-date advice from the Joint Council for Qualifications setting out what is expected of all students.  Please also note the following, specific to Campsmount students:

  • Exams will take place on the timetabled day and in the timetabled session, i.e. am or pm.
  • Students should make every effort to attend their exams. If a student is going to be late for their exam or is unable to attend, please inform the school by telephone on 01302 700002 as soon as possible.
  • Unless it is the final chance to take that exam it is unlikely we will be able to apply for special consideration if an exam is missed. You will need to take it in the next available session. 

In the event that the school is unable to open for exams at all, we will take advice from the relevant examination board.
