Christmas Exams 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As you may be aware, Christmas exams in Davis College have traditionally been held in the school hall where large numbers of students sat formal exams. Due to Covid 19 we will not be able to hold exams in this manner this year. However, we are holding Christmas exams. Please see below for the format for this year.

Exams for 1st, 2nd 4th, 5th year groups will be held between 7th and the 18th December (please note we are closed on the 11th December as per school calendar but we are open on the 14th December which had been scheduled as being a school closure.)

  1. Students will continue to follow their normal timetables and exams will take place in class time. Some teachers may use a double class period to give an exam or others may choose to give a different part of an exam over a few single classes.
  2. Please note exams are now only 4 weeks away.
  3. Guidance on study is available on our website at http://daviscollege.ie/page/Study-and-Revision/78021/Index.html

To avoid students ending up with too many exams in any one week the following schedule is in place
