  3. Ventilation will be maximised in exam venues.
  4. We are building in long gaps between exams sittings to provide for further ventilation of venues.

  7. You will be given wipes to wipe down your desk and chair.
  8. Every night we will be deep cleaning large exam venues to ensure venues are appropriately sanitised.
