The day of an exam can be very stressful, especially if you don't know what to expect.

As well as preparing for the exam, you also need to know the rules on what you can and can't do in an exam room.

Visit the SQA website for information and advice on what happens on exam day, including:

  • being prepared on the day
  • exam conduct (what you can and can't do)
  • final things to remember
  • what to expect when you enter the exam hall
