Please find the below instructions before you sit for an exam:

Headphones in exams

The use of headphones or any electronic devices in exams is prohibited. Please note that, before sitting an exam, you may be asked to remove any headwear which conceals your ears to enable checking. This is done to ensure that no concealed headphones or other electronic devices will be used during an exam. Female students wearing any form of religious or cultural headwear which conceals your ears may ask that a female invigilator carry out the check in a separate room. You will be asked to momentarily remove your headwear to reveal your ears and face for the purposes of checking for headphones and for identity checking. Where a male student is asked to show that he has no concealed electronic equipment may request that this check is carried out by a male invigilator.

Watches in exams

Students found in possession of a smart watch will be required to place this in their bags or underneath the desk. The use of any smart watch is prohibited in any exam. All watches (not smart watches) will have to be placed on the exam desk to enable the invigilator to be able to check the watch. There is a clock displayed in all exam venues.
