    God, I can't stand it when people rely so heavily on their phones. What's the point in keeping it on in an exam anyway, when you know you won't be able to reply or read the text before you leave the room?

    I just had my phone in at the start of the exam there is no point in risking it. Some idiots in my year whose phone could go off although a teachers did go off and they recevied very mean looks.

    Well I have to admit I've had my phone on me in a few exams, since I remember at the last minute that I haven't got my locker key. I would rather not hand it in as they usually just stick all phones/iPods etc in a pile at the front of the exam room and I have a feeling someone will nick it if I leave it on the front!

    Although I always remove the SIM card and battery from the phone to make sure it dosen't do a thing.


    Why people take them in knowing they are taking them in is beyond me. Not like they can call their mate halfway during the exam and ask them to search Google for the answer :rolleyes:

    Haha, I love to see people leave kisses and hugs at the end of each post.

    That's a bit stupid though, I can see why you wouldn't want to hand them in. I'd definitely remove the battery or something, though.

    Here's a thought, why not leave them at home? No one's phone went off in any GCSE I sat last year or AS this year. What's the point in risking getting disqualified from all exams on an exam board for the sake of having your phone on you when someone texts you asking if you want to go to a party or something after the exams?

    our school have a very strict no phones in school policy, but everyone does, so in the first few exams everyone turnt them off but didnt bring them forward, and then someone did bring it forward and nooone said anything, so like now in the big exams with everyone, like in out Eng Lang on friday, there were like 60phone (no joke) on the front table it was hilarious.

    But nah noones been disqualifed, our schools a grammar noone would risk doing anything really.

    u cud go as far 2 say that its illegal 2 have ur fone on in exams
    I think it is a breach of exam law or something.

    They say that its illegal to have a phone on you just to cover every eventuality. Rather than offer loads of rules like "it's okay if you do x, y or z" just ban then completely. Much simpler.

    If it does go off you could be excluded from all exams in england and wales. So you could always move to scotland

    No phones have gone off in my college except the theachers but concidering there are only like 30 of us taking GCSE's it's not all that suprising that none have gone off. The teachers have to have their phones for some reason.

    One of the teachers in my college had to phone the next teacher taking over cause they were really late. It was so off putting hearing them on the phone when trying to do the exam :mad: . I felt like shouting out "Oi trying to do an exam here remember". I didn't. Not that he would have done anything about me doing it.
