Examinations are an opportunity for student to exhibit the skills mastered. They are one of the yardsticks used to help the teacher gauge how the student is coping academically.
DURING EXAMINATIONS STUDENTS MUST:
- Prepare themselves well by doing systematic revision.
- Seek help to learn how to make a study schedule and improve their study skills.
- Be punctual. Students arriving later than a quarter of an hour after the commencement of the exam, will not be allowed to sit for the exam.
- Behave in such a manner that, besides being concentrated to complete their own exam, do not disturb other students.
- Bring what is required of them such as calculator, ruler and all stationery. They are not allowed to share.
- Bring a reading book to use when exam is completed.

The school has absolutely no tolerance for students caught copying during examinations. Such student will be disqualified from pursuing the examination.
Every effort is made to ensure that the right student will sit for the right level. However, students are encouraged to know well which level they follow thus they can double check when they are presented with the exam paper.
