Examination Rules and Regulations



At Babington we wish to make the examination experience as stress-free as possible so that our pupils can attain their full potential. We have created this page to enable both parents and students to familiarise themselves with examination procedures and regulations.

It is essential that students are aware of when they have been entered for examinations and our students will receive a paper timetable listing all examinations they have been entered for in each examination series with dates and times.

It is important that students retain this information for reference.
