Students must be present for marshalling.  Marshalling takes place in the Auditorium.  Marshalling entails checking absences, calculator clearing, equipment checking and giving out notices.  Students may be late entering the exam if they are late for marshalling as checking must still occur. No additional time at the end of an exam is provided for a late arrival.
  • Morning exams:  Marshalling at 8.30am for 9am start
  • Afternoon exams: Marshalling at 12.50pm for 1.15 start

Student Examination Briefing

Students will be briefed about examination attendance, conditions of assessment and special circumstances on the Monday preceeding the first exam.  It is important students understand that examination rules must be adhered to in order for their results to have integrity.

SAC students

Near the exam week SAC students will each receive a written timetable to ensure they know where and when their exams start and finish etc.  Extra time allowances for Extended Time and Rest Breaks is given prior to the usual starting time.  

Signing up for Scholarship examinations

Any student sitting at least one Scholarship examination should sign up to sit one Scholarship exam on Saturday morning.  Further Scholarship examinations can be fitted around other exams and students must sign up for these.  To sign up please complete the details on the booking sheets in the foyer of the Common Room - we will then expect the student at marshalling for that session and arrange for the paper to be available at that time.  Some sessions have limited availability.
