Information for Candidates:

Ban on watches in examsAs you may have heard on the news, there has been much discussion about whether watches should or should not be allowed in exams. As a result, and following recommendations from exam boards, we have taken the decision to ban all watches from exams. Please ensure that you leave your watch at home or somewhere safe before any exam, as it will not be allowed in the exam halls.

This rule will take immediate effect and will be implemented in all exams both internal and external.
