Exam Times

Following a review of exams procedures JMHS will now start all morning exams at 9:00 and all afternoon exams at 13:00.  Students must ensure that they arrive at the exam venue at least 20 minutes before the start time of the exam.  Parents will need to ensure that suitable travel arrangements exist for students where exams finish after normal school hours.

Equipment required for Exams

Please can Students and their Parents ensure that they bring the appropriate equipment to all exams.  To avoid delays at the start of the exam disadvantaging all candidates, equipment will not be lent out in the exam venue until the exam has commenced, hence students need to ensure that they arrive at the venue with all of the equipment that they require:

1. Calculator
2. Ruler
3. Black ink pen (biro, roller ball, etc.)
4. Pencil (sharp, not coloured, and appropriate hardness – i.e. HB – 2H)
5. Eraser
6. Pencil sharpenerand additionally for some Maths exams7. Compass
8. Protractor

Controlled Assessments

Controlled Assessment is similar to coursework in many ways but is carried out under supervised conditions.  It aims to give candidates an opportunity to show what they know about a certain topic or area of a subject.  For more information see the JCQ Notice to candidates – controlled assessments or this guide in plain English.

Avoiding plagiarism 

Ofqual, in partnership with plagiarismadvice.org, has published three new guides to give teachers, students and parents/carers a greater understanding of how to produce honest, authentic and correctly referenced work. The guides are available for download from http://www.ofqual.gov.uk/plagiarism The Student Guide – Using Sources describes how sources can be checked for authenticity, authority and accuracy using a range of techniques including specific advice about popular wiki resources, such as Wikipedia – which the guide highlights as an excellent starting point for research – so long as the material is verified using authoritative sources!

The Parents’ Guide includes additional background information on the subject of plagiarism.
