    I say you're welcome and smile when they take my paper. But i wouldn't thank them, no unless they gave me a calculator or something as I'd forgotten mine or I was early and they were handing my a test.

    Don't forget to write 'thank you' on your exam paper too.
    On last years Physics paper, I wrote 'NO TIME!!!' at the end. Quite rude of me...

    I would've written 'sorry, but this is your job'.

    ok this is the dumbest question i have ever asked

    but are you supposed to say thank you to invigilators in exams? i had an AS exam yesterday and the invigilator hovered next to me after giving the exam out until i whispered 'thanks'. i'm not sure if she was just stood there, or if she was actually waiting for me to thank her.
    You're meant to say **** off
