    We got given clean copies of of mice and men and an inspector calls for the exam which are not to be written, but I was just wondering if you're allowed to fold corners of pages lightly and take it in the exam like that, of pages of main useful quotes?

    I see no reason why you couldn't. I did it in my exam, was no issues.

    Same, I hope we're actually allowed because it will be so much easier than frantically flicking through pages in the exam haha

    We were given a clean copy of To Kill A Mockingbird in the exam.
    I did a pretty good job at blagging it
    Good Luck

    During A-levels it was absolutely prohibited, and it is at university.

    You get the book when you go in and sit down, you won't get the opportunity to fold down corners etc before hand as you should (by exam rules) get given completely new copies. However during the exam you can fold the corners and you are allowed to amke notes on the book (most schools say you cant so they can reuse them). Good luck !!

    Not at our school we've got given the clean exam copies now, the examiners check your book when you go in but I'm asking because folding the corner isn't writing notes etc is it?

    I don't recall folding corners of Lord of the Flies.

    You should pretty much have all the possible quotes for all the different themes memorised come exam time, or at least know where about they are in the book.

    we all did, also slightly ripping some of the pages that we wanted. the examiner only flicks through them to make sure there is no writing

    I did, but then unfolded them because I was worried. I could still see where the pages had been folded though so it was fine

    Why does WJEC not let you have books?

    and ok I might fold them but then unfold them before the exam so they can still be kinda seen by me, thanks

    No one will notice, and if they do, you're doing it wrong.

    For GCSE we weren't allowed to (WJEC :sad: ) but they let you do it at A Level even on WJEC and you can fold page corners over and put little sticky markers in there, but you can't make any notes on them. So you should be fine
