STOP PRESS - more time for exams!

Shortly after I loaded the 2015 exam timetables in all classrooms, the RHS issued a revised version. 

At last, they have reacted to the many complaints from students that they do not have enough time to do themselves justice in answering the questions.  So by trimming the breaks between exams, there is more time.  40-minute exams become 50-minute ones, 60-minute becomes 80-minute.

At level 3, there is less extra time; 90 minutes becomes 100,  75 becomes 85, 60 becomes 65 and 45 becomes 50. 

It's taken a couple of years, but they have listened to you!
