    Hello everyone, I'm currently in year 11 and my school does aqa GCSEs, as aqa does not do Arabic GCSE my school are allowing me to do Arabic edexcel GCSE. However now I just checked the exam timetable for 2016 and saw that my Arabic GCSE exam and my religious studies GCSE exam both happen at the same time!? So does anyone know what to do in my position? Or has anyone ever been in my position?

    Hi, when I did my GCSE's I had 3 exams on one day timetabled for the same time. Basically you are kept in isolation and just complete each exam after the other with about a 10 min break in between each.

    I just finished my GCSEs. There was a week when I had 7 exams in 5 days. Four on each of the first four days. And to finish it off, I had 3 on the Friday. The first two were in the morning and the last was in the afternoon. What happened for me was that I did the morning ones one after another with only a 20 minutes intermediary break. (Had I not asked for a longer break, I would have been given 10 minutes.) You're basically stuck in isolation. After I resumed with my friends and revised together for the last exam.

    Cram the first two exams on the evening before and the morning. Then cram for the afernoon exam once you've finished your second exam. It's going to be tough: The afternoon exam was my worse grade out of all the exams I've taken: I got an high A only.

    My exams are both in the afternoon so does that mean I have to stay after school

    It happens all the time - as an exams officer I probably deal with this happening 2-3 times a week in the summer. If the exams add up to more than 3 hours then one is moved to the other session in that day (e.g.from the afternoon to the morning) and you have to be kept isolated from everyone else between starting the first exam and finishing the last.

    Heard about something like that happening to someone in my school. If it's in school hours you are kept in utter isolation and do it after others. If it's out of school hours( I think) you go home- and you have to be kept in isolation and your parents have to sign a slip confirming it- don't think the latter applies to everyone but it happened to a previous y11- she had like 3+ exams
