    You need to find out who they belong to and go speak to somebody. Get them to look at the log of who else went to the toilet and you need to be calm and rational and do all you can do to prove they are not yours. Also the person who they belong to should have a guilty conscience. Go to somebody you trust will believe you and get them to help you. What about the handwriting? Is it different? How about you show your revision notes to prove they are not yours.

    Heard this story at least ten times. Just don't cheat - not worth it in the long run. If they really aren't yours then just try to make that clear to the exam board. You may get a ban on that exam (you won't get the qualification) or worst case scenario the board revokes all your GCSEs you are entered in with them.

    This is very possible especially since, as to them, you had the intention of using them. If you went out in any other exams they will assume that you have been using them then as well

    How come the invigilator found them?
    Presumably they followed you to the toilet
    Were the flash cards handwritten? Does it match your handwriting?
    Are they going to let you sit other exams in this sitting?
    Presumably you have informed your parents?

    If they genuinely arent yours then you need to be able to get assistance into preparing your statement. Your parent might wnat to get a lawyer or a family friend to help write your statement.

    Innocent until proven guilty, it's up to them to prove they were yours not you to prove they weren't.

    Hold your ground and challenge them to do this.
