    Hi does anyone have these subjects at exactly the same time? Has anyone ever had this situation? Which should I sit first? Any comments are appreciated.

    Assuming you don't have another exam later( in the afternoon) you will probably be made to sit GCSE sociology in the morning then be kept in isolation for the rest of the day and sit law in the afternoon or hide versa, depends how long the exams are, they might try and fit them all in one session( am or pm).

    You should be made aware of your arrangement closer to the time.

    which exam board is the GCSE Law being offered by? are there any other exam boards offering GCSE law? what topics do you cover at GCSE Law?

    I'm unlucky, I have RE, in the morning and law and sociology in the afternoon, I believe I sit them one after the other.

    You're asking the wrong person, I know nothing about law GCSE. But pretty sure it's not that useful. Sometimes even law a level is frowned upon.

    Doing AQA Law, I probably won't change exam board now, too late plus I've been learning for the AQA exam, have the textbooks etc

    I read that if your exams total up to more than 5h 45 minutes across both sessions( morning and afternoon) you do the next day. But I'm guessing it doesn't so you will probably just be isolated for the day!

    If the exams add up to 3 hours or less then you do one after the other the session they are timetabled for (i.e. both in one morning or both in one afternoon). If they add up to more than 3 hours then one will be moved to the other session in the day and you will be kept isolated from other students and without access to your phone/internet until you have finished the exams for the day. If you have a preference which way round you would rather do the exams then talk to the Exam Officer.

    Oh my god! I'm in the same position! :/ it really sucks, especially since you have to write a lot. Nut my teacher said we'll probably have a five minute break in isolation and just stay after school??
