Don't know if this is the right section but i have a question

if i hand in my phone to an invigilator and it goes off, will i get in trouble even if i handed it in? i am debating on whether i should take my phone on exam day or not. It doesn't have a removable battery so can't do that to be on the "safe side".

Speaking as an invigilator, yes, you can.

If in doubt, don't take it.

It is your responsibility to ensure your alarm etc is off before handing it to the invigilator.

You are better of not taking your phone to the exam or alternatively switch off any alarms etc.

Turn it off - we keep them at the front of the room and if one rings we take it out of the room!

If its not in your possession then there is not a real issue - the box is declared an area 'not in the exam room'.

Put the phone into flight mode, silent, and switch off any alarms to be safe. Maybe leave it with a friend or tutor if you absolutely must have it but are worried anyway

This is exactly what happened in my maths exam and the person did get into trouble.

It is better to be safe than sorry.

We're meant to turn them off before giving them in.

Once in one of my exams, the invigilator's phone went off! He didn't throw himself out, funnily enough.

Take the phone into school so that you can contact your school if you're running late or something ^-^ But then leave it in a locker or something away from the exam room so that nothing can go wrong at all

Don't take it in if you're worried, I get extra anxiety in the exam room worrying my phone will go off so I am planning to just leave it at home lol.

I wouldn't take it in at all. Even if you've handed it in to the invigilator and it's in a box at the front then and goes off, then you may not be allowed to do that exam and you could be disqualified from all the other ones. If you want to bring it in then leave it in your locker or give it in to the reception to look after whilst you do the exam and collect it after.
