Year 13 Mock Exams - January 2019
30 Nov 2018
Dear Parents/ Carers,
Mock Examinations – Monday 7 January 2019 – Monday 14 January 2019
In January, we are undertaking formal mocks for Year 13 students. These are important examinations which will evaluate students' progress in their subjects.
The examinations will start on Monday 7 January 2019 and run for six school days. Morning examinations start at 9.05am and afternoon exams start at 1.05pm. I would like students to be at their exam room 10 minutes before the examination (at 8.55am or 12.55pm) .
During the examinations, there will be no lessons for Year 13 students who will be on study leave throughout this period. However, the Sixth Form area and library will be available to students for revision. Lessons start again on Tuesday 15 January.
Could I also take this opportunity to point out that, as students are in full time education, we do not expect anyone to have a paid job between 8.45am and 3.05pm during weekdays in term time.
You will have heard in the press recently that one third of UCAS offers are unconditional this year. If your child receives one of these, please ask him/ her not to be swayed by this unless it is definitely their first choice. Students’ A Level results will always be used by employers to select best candidates for jobs.
Reports for Year 13 students will be available via MCAS towards the end of this term.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Miss M Hawksworth
Director of Post 16 Studies
