Mock Exams

In order to implement discipline and ensure our students are striving to work hard, we monitor our internal students’ progress through mock examinations, which are designed to reflect their performances in the actual exams. These exams are aimed to simulate a true exam setting and enable students to familiarise themselves with the correct procedures of an exam. Our students are allocated a mock exam timetable, an example of which is displayed below. They are also provide with a detailed report that includes their results and target grades which are based upon their individual performance.

The team at BTC understand that exams can be demanding and we, therefore, aim to make the mock examination experience as stress free and successful as possible for all our students. We also believe that these exams are an invaluable tool in preparing our students for any exams they may have in the future. Any students achieving below a grade C will therefore be obliged to attend a target-review meeting, in order to assess what improvements need to be made and to highlight the techniques that need implementing to facilitate the improvement of any low grades.

Mock exams begin in the second week of January for a duration of one week. All mock examinations take place in our centre on Robin Hood Lane and are carried out under uncompromising examination conditions. Students are forbidden from taking any of the following items into the examination hall:

  • Mobile phones
  • MP3 or MP4 players
  • Ipods
  • Potential Technological or Web enabled sources of information

N.B Students who are found in possession of these items will be expelled from the examination hall and will also be disqualified from attaining their overall qualification.
