    Having being given my exam timetable for the summer, I checked online to find out when the half term week off was, only to find out there's an INSET day on 24th June, which is the same day as my C4 exam.

    Has anyone else been in this situation or could perhaps shed the light on what happens in this type of situation.

    One of my GCSE exams this year will also be on an inset day - 6th June. I am assuming that you will have to arrange your own transport and not get the school bus (if that's what you usually take) because everybody else will not be travelling to school.
    The exam will still go ahead because of the examination rules etc.
    If anything, it's probably quite good because the school won't be noisy and full of year 7s screaming whilst you are trying to take the exam

    You'll turn up and sit it just as usual, whilst the lucky teachers who have escaped the grimness of staff training will run the exam exactly as it always is run.
