Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.


Final exams for IB2s begin the morning of Monday, May 2 with English.

A detailed communication was sent to parents and students at the beginning of March with information about the exams, schedule, conduct etc.

This week, a final exam reminder was sent to students via email. This message included the following:

Double-check the schedule

By now students should have picked up their personal exam schedules from Ms Hewson in the Student Centre Office. If students do not have their schedule yet, they should be sure to check in with Ms Hewson ASAP. The general schedule is posted on the IB pillar just outside of the Student Centre Office.
Please review the schedule carefully; students must make sure they know exactly when they are writing. According to IB regulations, students must write their exams as scheduled. It is critical to be on time. If students are late they will not get extra time, nor will they be permitted to take the exam at a rescheduled time.

Review the rules

All IBO rules and regulations are in effect during the entire exam period. UCC is bound to uphold these rules and the integrity of the IBO’s examination process. Exceptions to IBO rules and regulations may not be made in any case.
Students should review the IB Conduct of the Examinations. This document is posted on the IB pillar just outside of the Student Centre Office (and will be posted outside the exam rooms) and was sent to you at the beginning of March in the exam information email.


Exam locations: All exams will take place in the OLD GYM, except for those students granted extra time and/or laptop use. These exams will be held on the third floor of the Creativity Centre.
