Our fifth cohort of Year 12 students commenced their final exams last week with the three hour English exam kick starting the three week period of exams. We wish the entire Class of 2014 the very best of luck with each exam! All Year 9, 10 and 11 students will also be completing exams over the next month. Year 10 and 11 students will complete an exam for all of their subjects, while Year 9 students are completing exams for English, Maths, Humanities and Science only.
The Exam Navigator for students in Years 10 and 11 is available to be downloaded from the College website click here. The Exam Navigator contains valuable information about the exams held at Gleneagles. It clearly details the guidelines and rules set for the exams, include the accepted and required materials and contain a comprehensive timetable for the exam period. The booklet will be distributed to students next week. Any inquiries regarding the end of year exams can be forwarded to the Senior School Leader, Ms Jo Tippett.
YEAR 9 EXAMS AND END OF YEAR PROGRAMS
In preparation for Senior School, all Year 9 Students will complete exams in Maths, English, Humanities and Science. It is a valuable experience doing formal exams as early as possible so that by the time students are undertaking VCE they are familiar with and better prepared for the demands and rigour of exams in their final years at school.
The exams are scheduled for 24th and 25th November 2014 after which the students will return to their normal timetabled classes. Year 9 students will not attend school on Tuesday, 9th December 2014, due to the Orientation Day for the Year 7 Students of 2015 but are required at school on all other days.
