Yes, they can. Actually you can do the exam in any order, but it's easiest to go in with the accompanist rather than getting them fetched from the waiting room in the middle of the exam.

In my last two clarinet exams I have done scales first and then the study. Then I get a minute's breathing space while the accompanist is called in
At this exam centre we fill in repertoire slips while waiting so the examiner knows the order in which we are doing the pieces.
As an accompanist I've been called in at the start for some and fetched later on for others. It may depend upon the proximity of the waiting-room to the exam-room; ours is close by, so the majority of candidates have fetched me after doing their scales. Most of my candidates have done them 'in order' but some have chosen to play B ,A, C.
We have slips as well. Just make sure that the accompanist knows the order you've chosen!
