    When did your school receive official exam timetable for 2014

    Hi guys,

    Just trying to work out an internal issue here. When did your school receive a finalised exam timetable from JCQ/exam boards for this current exam period? Also, on a side, do you offer any training (basic or otherwise) for any internal staff invigilating for exams?

    Ta in advance

    The timetable is usually finalised early Autumn - there will be minor changes up until around Feb. So this year the latest and last version was 1.6, issued in Feb 2014. The provisional 1.0 timetable for next year is already out: that's dated Feb 2014 as well. I would suspect however, that in most schools the exams timetable is generated from SIMS using the basedata relevant to the courses being taken in the school; that's what I do here - its called a skeleton timetable, and can be done when the basedata becomes available in the Autumn term. This has the advantage of eliminating the subjects not taught at a school and simplifying the timetable. As most exams officers will not know exact entry details until late January (the entry deadline is mid Feb) its likely that a meaningful skeleton timetable could be produced around Feb half term.

    We use external invigilators here who I train, we have a session each year, with a separate one for our TA's who deal with pupils with Access arrangements. We don't train teaching staff as they generally do not supervise exams.
