    Every Friday we have our assembly where the teachers talk about things such as problems or anything they want to let us know. This Friday they were going over the rules that we have to follow when doing our tests, these were some of the rules: No electronic devices, bring at least 2 pens, have a see through pencil case, no labels on water bottles. These were some of the normal rules But there is one that I do not understand: No USB sticks allowed! What am I meant to do with a usb? Stick it up my ass(Pardon my language) and download all the answers in to my head? Could someone please explain why a usb stick is not allowed in a test.

    You might connect it to your phone or tablet through a cable of some kind - I'm sure there are USB to jack converters around.

    If someone really wanted to cheat then they could write answers easily on the back of a large pendant. The exam board rules are final, you're only going to be in the exam for a couple of hours max, I'm sure it won't hurt you In regards to not knowing where to put things, I leave my bags in a cloak room and only take my pencil case and water bottle into the exam hall with me; then I don't have to worry about accidentally not having turned my phone off or anything.

    Theoretically speaking you could cheat quite easily using a USB stick. They're not exactly small and if you wanted to cheat you could either write on it or hide small bits of paper with answers on inside. Also, if the examiners caught you with a USB i guess they might presume that you have electronic devices on you i suppose but idk

    That doesn't mean everybody will follow that rule.
