Here is the exam schedule for June 2015.
- Read the schedule carefully and underline or highlight each of the exams you are required to write and carefully put in your agenda your exams, dates and times.
- Exams are 1.5 hours unless otherwise indicated.
- Please post your exam schedule in an obvious location at home. *Remember it is your responsibility to be in the designated room at the scheduled time for the exam.
- A medical certificate, specifically stating you are too sick to sit an exam, must be submitted within 24 hours to substantiate absence from the examination in order to receive an estimated mark. Absence for reasons other than this will result in a mark of zero.
- Copies of this schedule are available in the main office.
- Students arriving late to their exam will not be granted extra time.
- Choose a comfortable, well-lit place.
- Look over your notes at the end of each day because you will retain the information better if you review it within a 24-hour period. Then review everything again at the end of the week.
- Make certain that you understand exactly what is required for homework before you leave the classroom.
- Try and complete all assigned work in advance of its scheduled due date. This will allow you to go over it at an unhurried pace to check for errors or add important afterthoughts.
- Organize your notes as soon as possible after taking them. Include the date and any additional information the teacher may give. Don't be afraid to ask the teacher to clarify a point.
- Don't fall behind. It is very difficult to catch up and at the same time deal with new work.
- Go over your notebook and write down only the most important points. Leave out non-essential information and concentrate on "bare bones" material. Use this condensed version to study for tests and exams.
- When you receive your exam, check that you have all the pages and write your name on each page which is to be handed in.
- Read all the questions, noting the marking scheme and total time for the exam. Underline, circle, or highlight key information, such as choice of questions.
- Budget your time carefully, keeping in mind the mark value for each question and the total time for the test or exam.
- Read each question twice before answering it and follow the instructions carefully.
- Answer the easy questions first.
- Jot down, in rough, ideas and points which contribute to the answer of the question you are doing.
- Be sure to proofread your work. Check for spelling, grammatical and stylistic errors, and missed questions, incomplete and incorrect answers.
