Clash exams

If you are scheduled to sit two exams at the same time you are required to sit your exams in the clash exam venue.

Both vocational education and higher education students with clash examinations will be notified via their student email account on 29 May 2017.

Where a school-run exam clashes with a practical exam you need to contact the relevant school.

Email the exams team at with any other queries about possible clash exams.
