Yep, we could use our own TKAMs as long as they weren't annotated. Hehe, you'll be annoyed to know this, but our English teacher suggested maybe pages 'might get folded, you know, when you don't have a bookmark and you fall asleep reading'. MUAHA! Let's just say it was quite easy to find the key events and quotes.....:P
lol the water bottles are allowed for us. Except when we had our AQA Graphics exam. Wonder Why?
Because in the time between the beginning of the exam and the question on water bottles, you could quite easily forget what a bottle looks like!
We're allowed any form of water or flavoured water, they usually prefer it to have a pull-up top (if you get what i mean) so that it doesn't spill over the paper and cause an acident!
Your school is perfectly entitled to make it's own rules on food/drink during exams. However, if it is very hot then you have a case for convincing them to allow water.
They specify that you're not allowed personal TVs? Does that mean someone has actually tried it? We're allowed water, but it has to be on the floor, but they get mad at you should you dare pick it up to take a sip.
Big liars. we're allowed water
lol were allowed basically anything, mate takes in a big 2litre bottle of orange squash into each exam and a 12pack of jaffa cakes, he usually has one left for me at the end, lol, but our school dont care, we dont even do that leave it on the floor thing, lol
my school allows water they dont check the bottles and dont care if they have labels
Yah - there's nothing wrong with water in our exam room. Our school also allows energy sweets to "help us think" (but you can only have certain brands! They're so funny like that!)
why would water affect you in any way?
It's just H2O!
We're allowed water as long as you leave it on the floor so you don't spill it over your work. I find it very helpful to drink every half an hour or after long sections. Just makes me more relaxed to do the rest of the paper, and I work faster having the reward of allowing myself to drink once I finish the question. I don't think food is allowed in exams, particularly sweets with papers that make lots of noise, but I think in some of the 3 hour A level exams you are allowed sweets or chewing gum.
Beware of chewing gum though- it is the thing our head hates most in the world, and at the end of term we all have to scrape any old chewing gum off the bottom of tables. Its GROSS, and you'd think the fact that everyone has to do it would put people of, but it seems that is not the case, so we all nick knifes from the canteen to use to do it...
