My older sister, who is doing her A-Levels now, just told me that i'll have to stay over at an examiners house and do the second exam on the next day. This is so i have no contact with other people and can't cheat. Is this true? I really don't want it to be. If not, what do they do instead?
    LOOL
    I heard that you just stay after school and do the exam?
    perhaps you should ask your school since that's where you'll be sitting it

    Normally you sit one after the other. When I did it, they gave us a 15 minute break inbetween.

    No way would they do that unless your school is different to the rest of the UK
    Normally they give you a small break and then you will do the same exam the same day by the sounds of it your sister is just trying to scare you

    How long are the exams?
    Its likely if its less than 6 hours, they will move geography 1 and law 1 to the morning and then you'll sit the other two one after the other in the afternoon but check with your exams officer to be sure.

    Unlucky! Fortunately I don't have any AS exams on the same day but mine are all really close together.

    Anyways, back to the question, I would think it to be the same as GCSE exams right? You'd just stay in the exam hall the whole time and do one after the other? That's what we did at my school. Not entirely sure but I doubt you'd have to go to an examiner's house?

    You might do them one after the other under supervision in another room so that you have no contact with other students. This is what happens at my sixth form, you should ask your exams officer about the arrangements nearer the time.

    It happens all the time. If the exams add up to 3 hours or less then you will do one straight after another with a short supervised break (which is meant to be under exam conditions) in between the 2. If they add up to more than 3 hours then they will move one to the morning and then keep you in isolation from the end of the first exam until when you start the second.

    They're both two hours long so i guess they'll move my other exam to the morning, thank you for your help
