    I know that it says in the exam rules that the use of correcting fluid is prohibited but I completely forgot about it and used my ink eraser twice in my science exam today. Does anyone know what would happen if they found out? Or is using an ink eraser considered OK in written exams and not multiple choice? I'm worried that they would fail my whole paper..

    I really doubt they'd care. I used ink erasers all through my GCSEs and was never told off about it. Just don't do it again if you're worried about it.

    Remember, it must be a transparent pencilcase. Some of the things they forbid on my exam regulations sheet are faintly ridiculous. They include pocket televisions and digital cameras. Yes, like I'm really going to find time to watch Oprah and take a thrilling picture of a table-lined hall during my exam. :rolleyes:

    They don't like you using ink erasers because you might change your answers after the exam? This is what our invigilator said. It seems slightly pointless seeing as you could just scribble out what you've written anyway. Oh well, I guess it just reduces the chance of somebody being able to do this. Did you use just an eraser pen or Tippex? I just didn't take the eraser pen in with me so I can't use it. Today in the exam I reached out automatically for it but it wasn't there...phew.

    Don't worry Sol. 'Twill be fine

    If anyone manages to stand on their desk during an exam, take a picture of the exam room and get away unnoticed, I take my hat off to them.

    i think the reason is cos they stick em in shelves for ages, and it peels off, ie. your writin goes poof! And dissapears, meaning u dont get no more marks

    I think it'll b ok, as lng as an ink eraser dunt make ur writin fall off the page

    Thanks for your replies, I feel less worried now. I only used an ink eraser, didn't use any tippex or any of that stuff. Even an invigilator saw me use it and he didn't do anything but then again, most of the invigilators were half asleep.. :rolleyes:

    Don't think so, but that's forbidden by the school anyway.
