  3. Always bring the appropriate equipment with you: Black pens only for writing, pencil, ruler, eraser and any other specialist equipment that you are advised to bring such as a calculator for Maths/Engineering/Science. This is your responsibility and these will not be supplied by the UTC. Highlighter pens can be used on question papers but not on your answer sheets or scripts. Your pencil cases MUST be transparent.
  4. Mobile phones or any technology/web enable sources of information are NOT allowed into ANY examination room. Possession of any prohibited item will lead to disqualification, whether they are switched off or not when found. They must be switched off and handed to the invigilator before entering the examination room. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they do not have any prohibited items in their possession in the exam rooms.
  5. You will not be allowed to leave the examination room until the end of the exam you are taking unless you are ill or need to go to the toilet, in which case you will have to be accompanied.
  6. To attract the attention of an invigilator during the exam, raise your arm and someone will come to you, silence should be maintained throughout the exam.
  7. If any student causes a disturbance they will be removed from the exam and their paper will be cancelled.
  8. If you are going to be late for an exam please phone the school as soon as possible. If you arrive late you may or may not be allowed to take the exam.
  9. If you are unwell on the day of the exam MUST to obtain a doctor’s note.
  10. Students are allocated a candidate number which will identify you for all exams and will be on your place card on your table.

Examination Terms:

Script – The official examination paper you have used to give your answers on. These are sent away to be marked by an examiner for external exams.

Mock Exams – These are exams the school plans and organises. These are for assessment of students’ progress and for practice in exam preparation, revision and sitting exams under controlled conditions.

Centre Number – This number identifies Silverstone UTC as a centre to take examinations. You will write this on all your scripts.

Candidate Number – This is the number that is given to you when you begin to take GCSE examinations, you will keep this number with you throughout your time at the UTC. You will write this on your scripts alongside your name and Centre Number to identify your work when its sent off to the examiner.

UCI Number – (Unique Candidate Identifier) This number is also given to you when you begin to take your GCSEs. It will appear on your statement of entry and results publications.

ULN Number – The Unique Learner Number is a 10 digit number that have been allocated to learners and will appear on the candidate statement of entry and results publications. It will be theirs for life and it will never be given to another learner. It has been designed to ensure that no additional meaning can be inferred from it’s structure, for example, geographical location or level of learning.

Statement of Entry – This is a sheet produced by the school about 8 weeks before your examinations in January or June that shows your name, candidate number, ULN and UCI Number. It also shows the code, subject, tier and date of each examination you are entered for. You must check this carefully to make sure that all the details on it are correct.

Timetable – For external examinations you will receive an individual timetable soon after you have checked your statement of entry and this will show your name, form, date of birth, candidate number and UCI numbers as well as the dates, times and duration of each of your examinations. There is also a preliminary one above that you can subscribe to using google calendars.

Invigilators – These are people employed by the school to ensure that examination rules are followed during the exams and to help students during the exam if they have a query. For example you can ask them for more examination paper to write your answer on but they can’t explain a question to you.

Examination Boards – These are organisations that create the teaching courses for schools and produce your question papers. There are many of them, but Silverstone UTC uses AQA, OCR, Edexcel.
