    There was a phone went off in one of mine, but the invigilators just sat there and looked at the guy, then he put his hand in his pocket and stopped it. They all just acted like nothin had happened and didnt care. Even though people have got letters home from the school because they accidentaly forgot and handed their phones in BEFORE the exam to the invigilator. It's a joke.

    Our school asks everyone to give in their mobiles before the exma starts, they put them into envelopes with peoples names on them so they can get them back. We havetn had an invigilator come to any of our exams yet.

    well 9/10 times its more hassle than its worth disqualifying someone. They gotta write a formal report, over a page long, then the candidate gotta be questioned and ****, and then witnesses and bollox. So most times, the candidate is embarassed enough, and so will turn it off quickly, so why not just ignore it?

    lol yeah just ignore it. I think its so stupid that only having the phone go off is a disqualifiable offence, i mean if you actually picked up and started talking, then yes.

    I think you deserve to be disqualified for having the crazy frog ringtone in the first place. Makes me want to die, it does.

    theres one girl in year 10, who got disqualified from her module as she started txting on her phone to someone. she finished the paper and was still sitting there txting away. she got caught though and the AQA board said that if she was a yr 11 student she would have been disqualified from all of her AQA exams.

    no yr 11, has been disqualified yet. though the sixth form, esp the boys, they keep tlking to each other, in the exam room.

    No phones have gone off yet *touchwood* but as the exam officer keeps saying to us all, a year 11 has not passed without any phones going off and someone having a paper cancelled....so I'm gettin kind of scared cos I leave my phone switched off but leave it in my pocket, if a phone went off close to me I suppose they might search me and disqualify me? lol...I dunno though...I never leave it switched on but apparently that isn't the point...if I trusted the kids in our school I'd happily leave it in my bag at the back but, I don't, our school is full of idiots :p:

    Whoevers teachers laughed at all the phones going off, you're lucky!

    God, it's pathetic when people can't turn off their phones for a < 2 Hour examination. Oh noes, you might miss a precious text from your girlfriend, something along the lines of "love u loads c u @ the bus stop." Jeez.

    LOL yeah...how do we survive with our phones turned off knowing we could be leaving someone in suspense waiting for a reply to their text? :p: It's so silly....actually, one phone HAS gone off....it was the invigilators, a PE teacher lol! :p:

    Good point about the battery thanks! There's a couple birthdays coming up this week and I didn't realise that phones still made a noise even when switched off lol! xx

    We're not allowed phones in the exam hall and if a phone goes off, I've heard that everybody's bags are searched and all phones are confiscated. I've had this annoying problem of my phone turning on randomly like it has a mind of its own so I keep it at home, or leave it in one of the flower pots of my ex form room (if I really have to take my phone to school with me).

    Nobody's phone has gone off so far, but somebody's music player was playing loudly at the back and the bag was taken outside by a teacher. Don't know what happened to the player; I suppose the student won't get it back until the end of exams.
