Vocational Exams Timetable

Taking exams is a stressful time for everyone, but if you follow the guidance provided by the Exams Office, it will help you to navigate your way through to successful completion.

It is very important that students arrive on time for all their exams and is particularly helpful if you would try to be at the examination venue 10 minutes before the start time.  It is also important to the smooth running of the examinations that students have the correct equipment with them.  Our ‘Guide to Essential Examination Equipment’ can be downloaded below.

Guide to Essential Exam Equipment

We also have a Guide to Taking Exams at Crickhowell High School, which tells you everything you need to know to prepare for, to revise for and to sit exams, with comprehensive information on the whole exams process.  The booklet is currently being updated and will be uploaded as soon as it is ready.

All morning examinations start promptly at 9.00 am and most afternoon sessions start at 1.00 pm.

The emergency contact number for the Examinations Officer, Jay Shipley, is 01873 813543.  If there is an emergency, students must email her prior to their scheduled exam. If a student has lost their personal exam timetable, please contact Jay, either at school or via email on exams@crickhowell-hs.powys.sch.uk, to request a new one.

The following is the skeleton timetable for all vocational exams being taken in the academic year 2017 / 2018.  The timetable will be updated as new information becomes available.  A copy can be downloaded by clicking on the link below:
