Exam Discussion guidelines

We all like to talk about the exams we've taken and The Student Room is a great place to do just that. As soon as you've handed in your paper, you're free to come on here and discuss how it went. 
We do have a few guidelines around exam discussion and these are designed to be as simple as possible.

We really appreciate your help with these. We have these guidelines in place so we can do our best to keep things fair for everybody.

Oral and practical exams

These are taken by different students at different times. Please don't request or give out specific details about these exams while they're going on. 

ICT exams

Again, some ICT exams are sat over a period of days or weeks. Please don't discuss the detail of these while these exams are happening.

STEP exams

Are you taking a STEP exam? If so, please wait for 24 hours after the end of the exam before discussing specific questions.


That’s really all there is to it. Of course, we realise exam season is an exciting and stressful time for everyone, so if you do make a post when you shouldn't: don't worry. We'll send you a reminder to let you know and we might edit your post to make sure everyone stays on the same level playing field.

Good luck to everyone sitting exams!
