Linking to the 'stationery' thread in Appeals (sorry, not sure how to post a link) and bearing in mind that those who sat the exam in Birmingham can chose to share their results with Warwickshire and vice versa - were the children who sat the exam in Birmingham provided with a rubber each or did they also have to raise their hands? Or did they take their own stationery? Grateful if anyone whose dc sat the exam in Birmingham this year could clarify/confirm. Many thanks

In the Bham exams all children were provided with two pencils and a rubber.

I have never heard (within the last 5-6 years) of any child who did not receive these.

My son confirmed that he did indeed receive the 2 pencils and rubber, as mentioned in the letter. The letter did state this would be provided.

Hope that helps.

Just a quick question regarding watches. In the King Edwards exam last Saturday they could take in a simple watch with them and place on the table in front of them.

Is this the same for the QMGS exam - DS2 can't remember as he took the exam 3 years ago?

On the letter, it states:

Watches: With new smart technology, watches are not allowed. We regard these as mobile phones.

So am I right in assuming a simple watch is ok to take along and that just the smart watch is not allowed?

My son said in his room in the Birmingham exam they had the tape recording playing, but there was no visible clock. He took the exam at HGS.

A friend's daughter took her exam at KEFW and she confirmed that there was no clock, no watches allowed and they had no tape either. She was given a 30 second verbal warning, which completely threw her out and panicked her immensely.

So it seems there is no consistency, thus a little worrying if a child relies on any of these to help with timings.

"Watches: With new smart technology, watches are not allowed. We regard these as mobile phones."

I would read that as watches are not allowed, period, smart watch or otherwise.

I seem to recall (two years ago) mine wore a simple watch for one exam (Bham?) But not the other (Walsall?)

If in doubt, don't wear one. All children will be in the same boat if there's no clock or watch (not great to be without any time, but equal at least).

Or, if in doubt, take it, and hand it in if they don't let you have it.
