I have 3 exams this Tuesday. Psychology (AQA, PSYB1) is my last at 2pm. But before that I have Philosophy & Ethics (Edexcel, Foundations) at 9am and then Economics (OCR, F581) at 11:45am. Not happy, to say the least.

That's 4 hours and 45 minutes of exams on my first day of AS levels, with inadequate breaks, if I'm honest.

How about you guys?

I have FP1 and S1 at the same time. For some reason, Edexcel decided to make two of its exams clash.

That literally defies all logic. Best of luck with your exams though, Maths is something I struggled with!

The only day I have multiple exams on is tomorrow. I have Classics: Greek History (OCR) from original sources and in the morning and Geography (Edexcel) in the afternoon.
Good luck!

in my collage, when people had exam clashes, they had to do the exam back to back. There is no break.
This is surely inhumane, and definitely effects performance.

Thanks, you too.
To help with that, I now do S1 and then FP1 papers straight after each other, and it helps a bit.

Definitely. Though I think my school are sending in a letter with my 3 papers asking for consideration like they did when I was in the same situation last year for my GCSEs.

However, I would simply refuse to do them back to back, as the rules state they are obliged to give you a 15 minute break (though this is still not good enough, in my opinion).

I had 5 exams timetabled in for Tuesday 13th. I'm in Year 11, so I had Biology 2 and 3, Geography, and I'm taking AS RS, so both of those exams. It was calculated to be 6 hours of exams, and the cut-off is 5 hours 30 minutes. So, I'm having to sit the biology in the morning, being escorted until the afternoon, before I sit both of the RS exams. Then, my parents have to collect me, take my phone, turn off wifi - basically any external communication devices. They had to sign a declaration form, but it means I can then sit the Geography the following morning (Wednesday). Problem then is, that's when I'm supposed to sit my IT exam, so, I will then be escorted on the Wednesday too.
Fun times - right?!?

How would they know if you used your phone at home?
I remember one of my teachers saying, that a student had to live with her due to exam clashes. So wired right?
