    If you actually had the phone on you that would be a different story...but because it was in your bag across the room you'll probably be fine. You might get a warning from the exam board, but you definitely wouldn't get disqualified or lose marks

    You should concentrate on your projects and assignments to make your self innocent in front of the teacher, so that he/she might not think that you could cheat in exam while your class participation is good. If you cannot do your assignments well by yourself, you can take help from academic experts and contact me.

    Left my phone in my pocket during my GCSE exams a few years back. Alarm repeatedly went off, despite me panicking to turn it off without being noticed. Exam invigilators went nuts trying to locate the source of the sound, but eventually pinpointed it to my direction. Was told angrily to hand the phone over, so I did. Luckily, the exam invigilator knew how much of a nerd and goody-goody I was, so let me off lightly with an "I expect better from you, don't let this happen again". Scary experience nonetheless.
