    How can people in different countries do the same exam from same board at different times. Doesn't that mean people could cheat :confused:

    Theoretically yes, im not even sure if any exam boards do this but if they did then they might use different papers (different questions), the US and Asia dont use our exams so I presume it must be somewheree in Europe and the time deferences are very minor in that case.

    yh, i thought it was wierd too.the person i spoke to said that your exam would start at 8 our time so would be finished by 11, but ours started at 9 over here so there was no way i cud have spokn to her even if i wanted to. do you rekon they do it like that so at one point everyone is doing a paper and there cant be any discussion...all seems too much bother to me!

    Yeah. My understanding is you have the offiicial UK start time of an exam, say 9.15am, and nobody will sit the exam earlier than that, and if people are sitting it later they will be in supervised conditions.
