    Hellooooo
    I just wanted to see what people thought about this..
    I was sitting my exam a day ago.. There was 2 invigilators in the room one female and one male, we received our exam and were given the go ahead to start, I had my calculator on the desk like everyone else but then just as the exam started one of the invigilators checked the covers of them the inside where you can't see until removed..I had 2 formulas wrote down on the cover and I had completely forgotten.. they were in bright permanent marker! he just took it off me and put it on a table at the top of the room.. this also happened to 2 more people out of 24 of us, he told me he was just putting it up there and I can have it back after the exam.. nothing else was said does anyone know what the story is with that or what I should be thinking? sorry for the long story.
    HE ALSO MADE A NOTE IN HIS NOTEBOOK AND I'M SURE FOR THIS

    You're not normally allowed the covers of your calculators in exams. You should have known to place it on the floor or not bring it with you. Learn this for next time.

    I was thinking the same but then I've seen a few other forums saying you only find out when you get the results..

    I had another exam today and of course I left it at home but he did check again but said nothing, I would just prefer if he said something so I could explain rather than failing over it..

    They only removed it for the duration of the exam. That's why they check calculators before or around the start of an exam, it is probably an honest mistake but you shouldn't do that next time.
