Bad Weather & Exams

All exams will take place whatever the weather, as Exam Boards make no allowances for severe weather. These are external exams and cannot be rescheduled, and it is our intention that these exams will still take place even if NEW College has had to close for normal lessons.

All students should do all they can to get into college to sit their exams and arrive 10 minutes before their scheduled start time. Therefore students are advised to plan ahead with alternative travel arrangements.

Students who would normally travel to college by bus and are unable to safely get to college for an exam are advised to contact the college as soon as possible, and it should be before the scheduled start time of the exam. Remember the telephone lines will be busy so please leave a detailed message
