GCSE and A-Level exams starting now for thousands of school and college students.

This is the time of year students in years 11, 12 and 13 dread the most! Exam time. Some children do anything upward of 6 GCSE’s with students in grammer, selective and private schools doing as many as 14 or 15 GCSE’s. At AS level anything from 2 to 5 subjects and often one is dropped for A level the following year. This is a very stressful time for everyone. Schools and parents worry are the students doing enough revision and taking it seriously enough, the students feel stressed and are torn between studying and wanting to enjoy the nice weather coming and finding time for some work or hobbies.

Today for many is the last day of full time school as study leave commences. This allows students to study and revise, at home or at school if they wish and prepare for their exams. GCSE’s started this week for a couple of examing boards but the majority start next week. AS and A levels are not quite starting yet but soon. Students will already have applied for college, 6th form and university places and received their conditional offers, all now depends on the grades! The students are under lots of pressure from parents, offer letters, their schools and colleges and primarily from themselves.

The rules are strict about what you can take into an exam room. If you are a college, 6th form, University or service wanting to appeal to potential students, why not give them an exam kit printed with your details and logo. For example, the kind of pens, pencils and rulers in a see through pencil case, branded with your logo! Advertising for your educational establishment and an easy way for the students to get their exam tools right and organised, all in one go.
