WARNING TO CANDIDATES

UNAUTHORISED ITEMS POSTER

JCQ Mobile Phone Video

Students are asked to watch this video prior to sitting any exams. It is important to understand that being in possession of a mobile phone, or any other electronic device, during an exam is likely to be classed as malpractice. The exam boards take cases of suspected malpractice very seriously and the probable outcome is disqualification from the exam meaning students will receive zero marks.

The school advises students to leave their mobile phones at home on exam days.

Policies

Swanwick Hall School has an ‘Internal Assessment & Appeals Policy’ covering all internally completed assessments. This policy is available by request from the Exams Officer, Mrs K Perry: kpr@swanwickhall.derbyshire.sch.uk

Post Results Services

The exam boards offer various post-results services including: a clerical check, review of marking  and access to scripts. Services are available to all students. For all requests, fee information and deadlines, please contact the Exams Officer, Mrs K Perry: kpr@swanwickhall.derbyshire.sch.uk.
