Edexcel exam related !!!! Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Why does not Edexcel allow students who sit the exam to wear an analogue wrist watch (not a digital watch), is it common to every country or just Sri Lanka ?

    It is far easier to ban watches totally than to say you can wear an analogue one and then have to go round and check every watch.

    Edexcel does not ban analogue watches in the UK but the regulations (common to all GCE UK exam boards) do say
    Advice: You may wish to ask candidates to place their watches on their desk in sight of the invigilator prior to the examination commencing
    and centres may decide to impose their own ban on watches in order to make it easier to ensure that cheating does not take place.
