This is a confusing and worrying time but please be assured that the school are here to help and support you. Your exam will be taking place at the same time and in the same venue as was originally planned. Your invigilators will support you in the same way that they would always do. Please find below some frequently asked questions and answers to help guide you:

Covid-19 Test before the exam

You will be invited via a separate letter to come in to school at least a day before the exam to take a rapid lateral flow covid-19 test. This will be supervised by school staff and take place in the Sports Hall in separated booths.

All invigilators will also be tested as well as all school staff.

e.g. Year 11 Travel and Tourism students will be invited in at 14:00 Thursday 7th to undertake their test.

When to arrive for the exam

For Morning exams please arrive at 08:35

For afternoon exams please arrive at 13:10

Where to arrive

Please arrive at the 6th Form Entrance where you will be admitted to the building and taken to the venue of your pre-exam briefing.

Venue of Exam

You will sit your exam in Glennie, so long as you have taken a rapid Covid-19 test.

If you have a smaller room as per your access arrangements, this will be provided as agreed.

Dress Code

Normal school dress code applies: for 6th Form (smart casual and appropriate clothes) and Year 11 (school uniform).

What if I cannot attend my exam due to Covid-19

Please contact the school in the normal way, providing as much evidence as possible. Mrs Forbes-Turner will be informed and procedures provided by all exam boards will be followed.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact your teacher or Mrs Forbes-Turner (forbesturner@blenheim.surrey.sch.uk).

 

Collection of Exam certificates

Collection of exam certificates is still taking place and will follow strict social distancing guidelines. Face coverings should be worn.

You can collect your certificates in person from our Main Reception between the times 09:30-10:30 and 1:30-4:00.  Alternatively, they can be collected by someone on your behalf provided they have written permission from you. In either case, we will ask that the certificates are checked and signed for. I regret that, unless arrangements have been made with a specific teacher, you will not be able to visit within school. 

 

If you have any further queries please contact the Examinations Officer:

Exam Contingency Day

The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common examination timetable is in the event of national or significant local disruption to examinations in the United Kingdom. It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations. Centres must therefore remind candidates that they must remain available until Tuesday 29 June 2021 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.
