Exam Information

It is the aim of Mount Carmel to make the examination experience as stress free and successful as possible for all students.

Conduct in Examinations

  • Students need to bring their own equipment to an examination. This includes pens, pencils, ruler, eraser and, where permitted, a calculator. If you use a pencil case, it must be transparent.
  • Students should arrive in good time and ensure they know where to sit, according to the seating plan on display.
  • Students will not usually be permitted to leave before the end of the examination, to avoid disturbance to other students.
  • Mobile phones are absolutely forbidden and their use can result in instant disqualification. Students should not bring a phone or other electronic equipment to an examination, and if they do so they will be required to hand it in to the invigilators before the exam begins.

These are some of the most important points to be aware of.

Top Tips for success in exams
