Year 10 and Year 11 pupils who are completing coursework, non-examination assessments and written exams must adhere to the strict rules and regulations as directed by the JCQ and relevant exam. At Golborne High School, we expect our pupils to respect these national rules and regulations, model the Golborne Way and act accordingly in each situation to ensure each aspect of the assessment is carried out in the correct conditions. We ensure that our pupils have a full understanding, through SLT assemblies and subject lessons, of what is expected of them in each situation and utilise the formal mock examinations to best replicate the written examination environment at each key assessment point.
For each formal examination, candidates will receive an individual timetable, detailing the date, time and duration of each examination. These timetables will also include their seat number for each examination. The seating plan for each examination will be displayed on the noticeboard at the end of the Sports Hall corridor.
The school will attach the finalised timetable for the Summer 2024 examinations here as soon as possible. Currently the timetable is provisional, and we are awaiting confirmation. The linked document will include all examinations being taken at Golborne High School during the Summer 2024 series.
Individual timetables will be released to candidates before each assessment point.
For each examination, candidates must arrive fully equipped with the following items:
Specialist equipment, such as a protractor, pair of compassed or tracing paper, will be provided by the invigilators (if required).
Only a transparent pencil case is permitted in the examination room.
Additionally, a clear transparent water bottle, without a label, is permitted in the examinations.
The Candidate Information Pack, which pupils need to be familiar with, explains in more detail the rules and regulations that must be adhered to.
Additionally, the JCQ guidance documents and a useful summary video are linked below for your information. It is important that all examination candidates fully understand what is expected and how to approach each form of assessment.
