Cambridge Exams and Yr9 PTE
23rd March 2022
In addition to a reminder about tomorrow’s Parents’ Evening for Year 10, we would like to inform you that there will be a Parents’ Evening for those with children in Yr9, from 5.00 PM to 7.00 PM next Thursday 31st March.

Teachers will be available in their classrooms for five-minute interviews with parents. Year 9 students are also expected to be present and to contribute to the feedback conversations. Appointment sheets will be distributed to students for them to begin to arrange interviews on behalf of their parents. Do please co-ordinate these times with your child, to the mutual convenience of you and each teacher.

We would also like to inform parents of Cambridge examination students in Years 11, 12, and 13 of several important points:
1. All Cambridge examination students have received a personalized Statement of Entry detailing the subject, date, and session (AM or PM) of each of their upcoming examinations.
2. These students have also received an indication of the start times of their exams. Morning exams will begin at 0830 precisely; afternoon exams will start at 1230 precisely. All exam students must be in school at least 30 minutes before the start time of any examination.
3. Students are aware of the Key Times of 0900 and 1300, with which our Cambridge exams must coincide for reasons of examination integrity. They have also been informed about Full Centre Supervision which must be applied whenever a student has two exams scheduled at the same time, or when the start time of a paper needs to vary from the standard schedule.
4. Students have been informed of the occasions on which the start times of any exams will be earlier or later than expected.
5. Students have been made aware of the strict Cambridge regulations regarding attendance and punctuality for exams. Any lateness or absence must be made known immediately to the school secretary and then officially certified; unlike internal school examinations, however, we will not be able to re-schedule the papers affected. In the worst-case scenario, late arrival or missed paper could cost the student an entire subject grade after two years of study.
6. Students are aware of the exam regulations concerning permitted materials, electronic devices, and malpractice. 
7. Students know that examination results will be published online by Cambridge during the summer holiday. Qualifying students will receive a user name and password to access their results. Please note, however, that Cambridge exam results and school transcripts will not be released to or on behalf of any student whose school account is in arrears unless an exceptional arrangement has been made by parents with the Principal. Parents are invited to share all documentation regarding the Cambridge exams with their children.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we enter this extremely important phase of assessment.

With very best regards,
Anthony Wilkinson, Vice-Principal
