External Exams – Students are responsible for ensuring they are entered for all of their exams. They will be required to sign a statement confirming correct entry for each and every unit. These should be returned promptly to Mrs Cook. Failure to meet deadlines may result in non-entry or possible late entry fees.

If you drop a subject after being entered for the examination, it is vital that you inform Mrs Cook immediately. If it is too late to obtain a refund from the exam board, you will be charged for the wasted fee. Failure to attend an exam will also incur a fee.
