    They have a duel. You take the winner.


    Seriously though - you'll probably be put into isolation and take one after the other.

    Yep, you'll do your first exam, everyone who isn't taking the second exam will file out, and then you'll start your second one.

    It depends how long they are. If you have more than six hours of exams in one day then you may have to spend the night at a teacher's house. If it's less than six hours in total, then they'll rearrange it so that you can fit them all into two three hour sessions then keep you in isolation where necessary.

    If your exams last over something like 6 hours (maybe 6h30) in total, then you exceed the limit you're allowed to do in a day. Which means you have to be in overnight isolation - this means staying with a senior staff member or exams officer overnight.

    Happened to a friend of mine - she was not best impressed

    I have Geography, Maths and Music IB exams on the same day. Music and Geography are both scheduled for 'Afternoon'. Means I have to do geog, then wait an hour in isolation, then do my exam. It's because the paper is already out. Ugh. I wont be done til around 6, then I have a big maths exam the next day.
