Admission Slips

You must bring your admission slip and school ID card to each exam. You will not be permitted to enter the exam without them. Admission slips have been given to all Year 11-13 students.  Students must keep this in a safe place. Should a student lose their admission slip, or forgot to bring it to an exam, they can print one form the NXQA website. This will then need to be signed by Mr Alistair West, prior to entering the exam.
