Once informed, the school will make every reasonable effort to accommodate students who are unable to take exams on particular dates. But owing to the logistical difficulties of scheduling a large number of exams involving thousands of students and a limited number of days, it may not always be possible to avoid those dates/times.
The school’s decision is final and there is no right of appeal if the school is not able to make such an alternative arrangement for a student.
Where a request is approved
Where a formal request is authorised and the student is permitted to not sit the exam at the scheduled time, the school will make every reasonable effort to ensure an alternative arrangement for the student is possible. This may include taking the same exam at an earlier or later start time, or taking the exam at the next opportunity.
