Over 40 invigilators are here to govern the examinations within college and assist those students who require additional support.

Examination Sessions

Exam Sessions or 'windows' take place every year in:

  • November (GCSE/iGCSE/Functional Skills/University Entrance Exams)
  • January (GCSE/Functional Skills/BTEC Exams & mock examinations for both GCSE and AS/AGCE)
  • Summer (A Level/GCSE/Functional Skills/BTEC Exams)


Generic Timetables are produced in provisional (12 months before) and a final format (2 months before). They detail the date and time of exams. They can be viewed on the exam noticeboard outside the Exams Office (room MB1.9 - near the Coffee Shop) or on the student intranet.

Individual Timetables are produced once all exam entries have been made. This timetable is specific to you and the subjects you are studying. A copy of this timetable is posted to you at home shortly before the examination window begins. A copy is also available on Pro-Portal. 

This timetable confirms the date and time of YOUR exams and the length of each exam you are entered for.
