Public Exams 2016 – PROVISIONAL Timetable and Year 11 Study Leave

Exams during severe weather conditions

For those who are concerned about severe weather conditions during exams

Dear parents

We had the first red rainstorm of the year last night so it is possibly a good time to refresh your memory on the exam arrangements under severe weather conditions.

Key points as follows:

– In the event of a Typhoon 8 signal or above, or a Black rainstorm, it is likely that all examinations will be postponed.

– In the event of a Red rainstorm, parents should listen to the radio for announcements about examinations and check the school website. Even though there is a decision to close schools, you must assume that exams will take place unless there is a separate announcement regarding postponement of exams. We depend on the final decision from HKEAA and ESF to see if exams are to continue.

– In the event of postponement, there will be announcements made about re-scheduling. Again, listen to your radio constantly and check the information on the school website.

– In extreme weather please DO NOT phone the school unless it is absolutely necessary.

– Exams will go ahead as scheduled under Typhoon 1 or 3 signal, or an Amber rainstorm.

– Once again all announcements are subject to the decisions made by HKEAA and ESF Exams Group.
