Exam Venues

You may require a specific examination venue which can cater for your adjustments/support requirements.

Some on-campus examination venues

Brockington is usually for students who have extra time in place, and/or use of a computer. You will be told which room to go in Brockington when the venue/seats are published on Learn.

Wavy Top is usually for students who have other adjustments including rest breaks, readers, scribes and those who need to sit in small rooms (including individual ones). You will be told if you are sitting in Wavy Top when the venue/seats are published on Learn. The video below tells you more about what you can expect in the Wavy Top building.

Students sitting their exam in a room within their School building will be contacted by their School Administrator directly. You will be asked to confirm your examination adjustments and be told which room has been set up for you.

Tips for if your examination is in a different venue

If you are taking your exams in a new venue, here are some tips to help you:

    1. Visit the rooms where your examinations are being held prior to the exam. This may help you feel calmer on the day as you will know where you are going to.
    2. Familiarise yourself with what’s around the examination room such as restrooms.
