June Exams

Melissa Parker, 27/05/2016

An exams reminder for June...

Room changes can be viewed on the Portal Page (right-hand side) or Grapevine (top left). I have attached the room changes spreadsheet (in date order) FOR THE FIRST WEEK ONLY which also shows staff initials (easier to search). Please try to advise your students ahead of the changes to minimize disruption. (They will be updated for the rest of June after half term).

Estates will be setting the rooms up in exam order for each exam. Please leave these in exam order for the remainder of the exam series as this will greatly help the Estates team.

Please remove or cover over any displays which offer information which could be useful to candidates.

Please also find attached the June Exam Timetable - this contains confidential information and should not be shared with students. Students can view their individual timetable on ProPortal.

Any queries, please get in touch with the Exams team asap.
