    Hi, I was wondering if I would be disqualified for writing on the front of a GCSE exam paper before the exam starts so I don't have to listen to the head retard list all the exam rules? I feel it would really help me offload some short-term memory things before they fade away as my life does while listening to the exam rules.
    Thanks

    Do you mean like writing your name down and stuff as soon as you're at your seat?

    I've always done this and never been told off, so I suppose so.

    When the invigilator tells you to write your name and candidate number then quickly scribble some things down if you want

    You can only write your name and candidate details, so unfortunately you're just going to have to put up with invigilator drone on :/
    On the plus side, this doesn't seem to happen at A level

    yes you can write your name and candidate details but i wouldnt write much else. you could just write these early and then think about your ideas whilst being read the instructions. however, i would sometimes listen to the instructions as sometimes it tells you important things like leave 2 lines between answers..which i have missed twice
