    Just found out two of my exams for side rent subjects are on the same day.
    This wouldn't normally be a problem but I have one at the exam centre and the other somewhere else and its atleast a two hour hour drive.
    The first one is a morning exam which ranges from either 8:30-9:30 and the other is an afternoon exam that begains at around 1:30pm. The first exam is two hours long so I won't be done until 11:30. What should I do?

    Run?

    Maybe if you get the school to contact the exam board, you can sit the exam board slightly earlier (so that the time of you finishing and the others starting overlaps, so you won't be able to tell anyone the answers) and the second one slightly later (same concept). A similar thing happened to one of my friends and thats what she did

    hahah that made me laugh so hard! Trust me if it was close enough to run it wouldn't be a problem. I guess I should contact the exam boards to see if anything can be done. Maybe contact the exam centre (they can change the timings they apprently have the power)

      You could contact the centres or the exam board involved and explain this to them, they may let you sit the exam earlier but then again I'm not sure about that because for all they know you could tell people who haven't sat the exam the questions.

      I'm sure something can be arranged.
