Letter sent to parents regarding mock exams

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As you are aware, the mock exams will take place during the first two weeks of February. All students will be provided with a timetable for their exams which will also be posted on the school website.

The mock exams are a good indicator of projected attainment in the June examinations. They provide feedback for both the student and the teacher which highlight areas in which the student is progressing, as well as areas that need to be emphasised for improvement. It is therefore essential that students make their best effort when completing these exams in order to gain an accurate evaluation of their progress to date.

Students are expected to be present for all examinations that they are registered to sit in the State Examinations in June. There will be no guarantee that there will be an opportunity to re-sit an examination that has been missed due to absence. Students must only attend at times when they have exams only. If they do not have a timetabled exam they do not have to be present in school.

Normal school rules apply during the examinations and students are expected to present in full uniform. They are required to stay in the exam centre for the full time allotted to the exam in order to achieve their own personal best outcome in each subject. As on all other school days, punctuality is important during the mock examination period. Students should arrive at school on time and fully prepared for each exam. It is recommended to arrive at least 15 minutes before the official start time, in order to organise any materials that are required for that exam. Arriving after the start time is extremely disruptive, causes distraction and increases anxiety for other students. Please note that students will not be given extra time to finish exams in the event that they have arrived late.

During the mock exams it is hoped to reflect the conditions that will be adhered to during the State Examinations in June. This will help students to experience the exam situation and therefore prepare themselves for what to expect. As such, students are expected to conduct themselves as they would during the official state exams:

  • Digital devices, for example, mobile phones or iPads, regardless of whether they are on or off, are strictly forbidden during the exams. Students may leave these in their lockers prior to entering the exam centre.
  • As in state exams when students need to use the bathroom facilities they will sign out with the superintendent and then sign back in again. The time of leaving and returning will also be recorded on their exam paper.
  • Students are not permitted to have any papers on the desk other than the examination paper and the answering booklets provided.
  • There will be absolutely no sharing of equipment. Students must come equipped with the necessary materials required for any given exam, for example, pens, pencils, rulers, calculators etc.
  • No books or papers — other than exam papers and answering booklets provided by superintendents — are allowed in the exam centre.

For a full list of regulations that are expected during the State Examinations, please refer to the following link: https://www.examinations.ie/index.php?l=en&mc=ca&sc=gy

The same penalties will apply during the mock examinations which aim to replicate official examination conditions. 'A candidate is liable to have his/her whole examination cancelled if he/she';

  1. Brings into the examination hall, or has in his/her possession or under his/her control any books, notes, papers, etc., (other than the examination paper, and answer books, etc., supplied to him/her by the Superintendent)
  2. Aids or attempts to aid another candidate.
  3. Obtains or attempts to obtain aid from another candidate.
  4. Communicates or attempts to communicate in any way with another candidate within the centre, or by electronic means with a person outside the centre.

Examination results and a report will be available on VSware when the marking process has been completed.

Finally, we would like to wish all of our students the very best of luck in the upcoming mock examinations and hope that the experience of sitting them proves to be valuable practice for all our third years as they prepare for their important State Examinations in June.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to your cooperation in relation to all of the above.

Yours Faithfully,
