If a candidate is entered for two papers which are timetabled for the same examination session, they may have a short fully supervised break between the two papers. The Regulations regarding the Key Time must be followed and the candidate must be under Full Centre Supervision during this break.
If a candidate has to sit two papers in one session, the second question paper must not be given out until the time allocated to the first question paper has been allowed and the scripts for the first paper have been collected. This rule applies unless the rubric of either of the question papers gives a different instruction.
Our interactive tutorial here explains some of the main regulations for timetabling examinations and will assist examinations officers in implementing them in their school.
