Exam Clashes
Unfortunately, each year, there are some instances where a candidate has two different exam papers timetabled for the same morning or afternoon session. Where this occurs, candidates will complete both exam papers scheduled for the session. Once the first exam paper has been completed, candidates will be given a short, supervised rest break, before completing the second scheduled exam paper. 

In line with JCQ regulations, this must be conducted within the examination room and under formal examination conditions at all times. Candidates cannot use this time to revise. Where clashes occur in the afternoon session, the end time of the second exam paper will be later for some candidates. As a result, candidates will need to ensure they have arranged appropriate transport from school on these days.
