Examinations & Revision

Exams Information

Whilst our approach to education at Ely College is about much more than the qualifications you leave with, examinations are a very important feature of our curriculum. To be a successful student, you will need to master exam techniques and get to know the rules and regulations set by national authorities to ensure that exams are fair, secure, and robust. 

This page provides easy to access and up-to-date information on examinations.

Please find below links to a number of documents that provide important information on what to expect during examinations. These include current timetables and regulations from the Joint Council for Qualifications and Exam Boards. These rules and regulations must be adhered to by all students taking examinations at Ely College.
