There are rules around sitting exams and you should read the documents below, make sure you understand them and ask questions if you need to. If you fail to follow regulations, issued by the Joint Council for Qualifications, you may be disqualified from the paper, the subject or all subjects. Murray Park School expects you to follow exam regulations without question.

Social Media: there are serious penalties for those students who make comments or pass on comments about exams on social media.

Exam timetables can be issued and revised by exam boards (awarding bodies) during the school year. They are firstly issued in a provisional format and then updated to a final format and you should note that exam dates and times can change.
