Examination Equipment

Below is a list of the equipment that we recommend ALL students in ALL year groups have, along with some tips and suggestions that could help to gain an extra few marks that could be the difference between one grade and the next:

Black pens

Tip: find a style of pen that your child finds comfortable to write with -  they will write a lot and it will help with their stamina if they are more comfortable

Basic Maths equipment, which means a pencil, ruler, a protractor and a compass

Tip: clear rulers are better as students can see the information that is under the ruler without having to keep moving it out of the way

A scientific calculator

Tip: The Casio FX83 is recommended as the way that it calculates some equations is more helpful to students than other calculators

Coloured pencils (for Design and Technology exams)
