Equipment Required for Exams

All students must be aware that it is their own responsibility to bring with them to their exams all the stationery/equipment that might be required.  The Exams Office does have spare stationery/equipment for use in emergencies but students must make every effort to bring their own equipment with them in order to ensure that they have everything they might need to complete their exam.  Depending on the exam being sat, this would include:

  • A pen (plus a back-up pen in case it runs out)
  • A pencil, eraser and pencil sharpener
  • A ruler
  • A calculator, compass, protractor (for Maths and Science exams)
  • Coloured pencils

Students may also bring highlighter pens in order to highlight important parts of the question; however, they should note that their written answers may not be highlighted in any way.

If students bring a pencil-case into the exam-room then it must be 100% see-through and with no writing on it at all.

Lastly, students may bring a drink into the exam-room; however, this must be in a see-through bottle and all labelling on that bottle must have been removed prior to entering the exam-room.

Certificate Information 2022

Summer 2022 Certificates

These will be sent to the school, from the exam boards, in late 2022.  As such, they will be issued to students in early 2023.  This will be in the following way:

Y11 and Y13 leavers

Certificates have now all been posted out, by Second Class ‘Signed For’ delivery, to the student’s home address. All certificates posted by ‘Signed For’ delivery will have to be signed for at the point of delivery. If they are unable to deliver the certificates, they will be returned to the school in due course.

Y11 students who progress into Y12 at The Corsham School

Certificates have now been issued to all students that progressed to Y12.

Examination Certificates Prior to Summer 2022

Please email Mr Morris or Miss Jackson who will check if the school still has copies of your exam certificates and advise accordingly.  If the school does still have copies of your certificates then the three options for collection will be the same as those listed above.

Lost Certificates

Each Exam Board has a different system for dealing with lost certificates. You should not assume that you will be able to buy replacements, so please keep them safe!  Any applications for replacements must be made by the candidate and cannot be made by the school on the candidate’s behalf.

It is becoming increasingly important that you keep your original certificates safe to show future further education establishments or future employers.  We can provide you with a letter (on headed paper) confirming your grades and signed by a member of the Examinations Team.  This may satisfy an employer who has asked for confirmation of your results.
