If there was any mistake (rarely) I use tippex. quick drying, and neat.

Are you allowed to use tippex in exams in England?

I think the problem with doing the things on computers is that you'd always get someone who could break through whatever restrictive controls they had put on the machines to go on the internet.

Even if the computer wasn't physically connected to the internet?!

Ah but the question is Do you take in spare cartridges, and if so how many?

Once again, are you allowed to use tippex in exams in England? In N.I. we're not, and you can even have your paper discounted if you used tippex. I don't really know why.

On seeing the post above, I am starting to be a bit weary. I used tippex in GCSE's, and the question paper does not say that you are not allowed to use them.

I use biros. The Parker version. I write fast, very fast, yet very neat at the same time. The last thing I want in an exam is to replace an ink cartridge. So I use biros. Also it flows easily, doesn't need much pressure on the page to get ink out, and looks like a good work, If there was any mistake (rarely) I use tippex. quick drying, and neat.
tut tut.... can't use tippex in exams....

edit: oops, should read the thread before replying.

on the exam regulations it clearly says "attempting to cover up what you have written is paramount to cheating. this includes using 'tipp-ex' or 'ink erasers'. if you do make a mistake, cross it out in such a way that it is still legible to the examiner"

Well in teh maths paper, which I have before me, it does not say that.

You are joking when they say that tippex is connected to cheating..right? Because surely rubber would be banned as well...

Haven't seen that on any exams before, but you should not use correcting fluid in an exam anyway.

I've been told by an exam marker that if you make an error, you should cross it out with a Z-shaped line. That way, the marker knows not to mark it. If however, you change your mind and you do want it marked, then just write 'ignore crossing out' and it shall be marked.

I've also been told that apparently, the marker can still mark crossed out work even if you do not write this.

it doesn't say that on the exam paper, but on the exam regulations. its the booklet you have to read and sign that you understand.
