Hi,

Has anyone known the exam venue and times for the Birmingham KES exams on 8/09? I have received anything so far from the authority, but would like to plan for the day earlier if possible. Thanks

We received an admission form acknowledgement letter a while back. In the letter it states that they will be providing further details regarding the venue and time after the August bank holiday. Hope this helps!

Here is the thread about last year's exam time and venues.

It seems to me that similar information is sought by parents on a cyclical basis and the same questions are asked time and time again at about the same time of year and contributors respond with the same answer each time (I know that is the point of a forum). I learnt so much from trawling through the old Birmingham threads and would encourage new parents to this forum to look through the appropriate thread about the same time each year (bearing in mind exams have been brought forward to Sept) - they will find all sorts of useful information.

For the record, our DC's exam venue was 9am in the morning at Camp Hill (2 years ago). 6th formers took boys away to the correct classroom - very well organised. However, it was chaos when we picked them up - all the children tried to get out the door at the same time! We arrived several minutes late as we had been waiting with the group of parents for the girl's to come out!! One of their new friends at school took the exam at Five Ways and his parents said it was also well organised. We allowed ourselves plenty of time and parked the car a couple of roads away and walked to the school - think this helped to settle us as much as it settled them!

Not received ours yet and don't know of anyone who has. We all know the venue and the time to arrive is usually between 8-9 am (maybe 8.45 latest?)

I expect it will be within the next couple of days - although they are cutting it fine aren't they? :roll:

Hi

We received our venue/time letter confirmation today

My daughter is sitting hers at Camp Hill Girls
Time of arrival is given as between 8.15-9.00am
No admission after 9.10am
Hoping to finish for 11.40am

Girls will be taken in from the main entrance of the school
Then parents are asked to leave

No parking on site or immediate surrounding areas
So leave in good time

Hope this helps :)
