There have been big changes regarding what to do with your phones and watches during exams effective from this exam season. 

As of January 13th 2014, you will be instructed by an invigilator to place your mobile phone(s) and watch in a clear plastic bag provided on your desk when you take your seat in the exam room. Phones can no longer be left in your bag, even if they are switched off.

This means that you will still be able to see your watch face as well as always having access to a large clock. Your phone(s) must be switched off for the duration of the exam.

Don’t forget to remove your belongings from the bag when you leave the exam.
