Year 9 Exams Information Booklet
This year we have made a change to the structure of the year 9 exam week. This has included the addition of some subjects as well as extra assessments in others. There are several reasons for this change. Firstly we believe that this will increase the rigour of our assessments and mean that we are better able to accurately measure student’s attainment during key stage three. Secondly, exam boards have now been instructed to move to linear exams at Key Stage 4.
It is the aim of Hinchingbrooke School to make the examination experience as stress-free and successful as possible for all students. The purpose of this booklet is to help prepare students for the exams they will take in the spring term. Hopefully, it will prove informative and helpful for you and your child. Please read it carefully so you are also aware of the examination regulations and the procedures to follow in the event of any problems occurring.
