    Hi, does anyone else have Edexcel German and AQA Computer Science exams conflicting on the same day at the same time. There are 2 german exams, listening and reading which add up to 85 minutes, and then there is 1 computer science exam which is 90 minutes so in total 175 minutes, which is 5 minutes off the 3 hour limit for exams. I'm not too happy about this because it means sitting exams one after the other. I was wondering what people's opinion on this is, and if anyone in the past had an issue similar like this and if it was a problem at all or not?
    Any responses are appreciated.

    The 3 hour limit for exams? What do you mean?

    I think there is something that says if your conflicting exams add up to 3 hours or over, you get a break inbetween your exams.

    I'm doing OCR computer science, as well as edexcel German. Our computer science exam is also 5 minutes right after the German exam, I've asked some of the teachers and they've told us that there will definitely be a break for us between these exams.
