    Hi am taking GCSE exams in may this year. I was wondering if we were allowed to take tissues in with us (i constantly have bad hayfever)?! If so in what form (box, unopened packet, separatley etc)? I know the invigilators have some but it put me off during mocks and i was always too scared to ask (plus i already had a couple with me!). The rules etc seem really strict and i dont want to get there and be disqualified!! Many thanks 😮

    Have you thought about something like a hankerchief? I don't believe you'd be allowed to bring tissues in with (whether in a box or packet or whatever) because you could write notes on them.

    At our school we're only allowed tissues if they are completely flat on the desk. Takes up a load of space so it's easier just to ask tbh. Not sure if that's just my school or an exam board enforced rule though
