no, we have to sit exams at the same time as you guys, which means pretty late sometimes. This rule was put in effect since some, would you believe, cheated-or tried to- using this fact...

Is this the first year then? I heard something about it in the news last summer. I'm suprised this loophole hadn't been nipped in the bud sooner.

i had to start my edexcel dual award bio at 5:30pm... same with maths and quite a few other ones...
since we are doing edexcel and OCR (UCLES), they made a few mistakes...
for example, there was a history paper that ppl in hong kong had started at 12 noon, where as ppl were gonna start it here at 5pm.
a few ppl cheated that i'm a aware of
the school then changed the times for some of these exams... all UCLES
