Hopefully, this section of the website will prove informative and helpful. Information on this page will relate to examination regulations and the procedures to follow as students prepare for examinations at Ravens Wood. A detailed information booklet is available here to explain the process in more detail. Please also refer to our Examinations Policies which can be found on our School Policies Page.
The Awarding Bodies (Examination Boards) set strict criteria which must be followed for the conduct of examinations and Ravens Wood School is required to follow these precisely.
