Hey guys, just checked the exam timetables for my june AS exams and it appears i have 4 exams for 2 different subjects and each exam being 1.5 hours and all for pm on the same day!

I realise this is a clash, but since this being my first AS year i am not sure how they sort this out.

Since the pm exams start at 2:00 will i have 7 hours of exams one after the other on the same day, or will they arrange it so i'll have some exams in am and the others in pm?

you'll sit them throughout the day...but your only allowed to do so mayn hours a day..so you may have to stay over night.

Maybe go with a teacher? Or maybe get a written note from your parents at home that they supervised you? Don't worry about it- I had this problem last year but they made me do it all in the same day in isolation..

Some people at our college lst year sat 9 hours of exams on one day... those doing English, Film, and Critical Thinking. They had to stay at college until 8.00.

You'll sit some in the morning, and after which you'll be put into isolation, until the afternoon session starts, and then you'll do some more !

Happy Days !

A lot to do with logic problems, when you have to carefully think about the questions, and probably the options it gives as an answer.

I sat 6 papers last year (began rediculously early)!!! If I could offer one piece of advice it would that if you think that your results will be affected by the long exam period, make sure you take the option to spend the night at an evigilators house!!! Your results will be around for much longer than one night and I really wish I had taken this option rather than sitting all those exams!!!
