Today I sat my chemistry exam and I had just closed my booklet as I had finished, so I got out my exam timetable to cross of the exam I had just done, as I was doing this an invidualtor came over and took it off me. There was nothing else other than my exam dates and seats on the paper. However, she told me she was going to report it to the exam board .

Will I get disqualified?

Unless there was some info on there that could be classed as helping you then no, they’ll just ignore it. The invigilator is a ******

Why did you feel the need to take out other paper with stuff on it? Obviously they would need to see what was on it so I don’t know why this surprised you.

There was nothing on it that could help me just exam dates and seats, the exam invigilator clearly saw this

Understand why it was taken off me, was just wondering whether it was going to lead to disqualification

Ok well no. Since it had nothing on it then you’ll be safe I would assume. No point in harsh punishment for no cheating.

The invigilators do not like you having paper on you of any kind as it comes under 'notes of any kind' (part of the regulations that the invigilators must inforce). Since it was taken off you, the invigilators will have a look at it and probably talk to your exam board about it. As long as there was nothing on there that could've put you at an advantage when sitting the paper you should be okay. If you are worried about it, contact your head of exams in your school and ask them about it

Exact same thing happened to the boy in front of me and almost happened to myself as well. He just went up to a teacher afterwards and told them what happened and as they could see it was just the timetable which you are allowed to have that it would be fine. So no, I don't think you will be disqualified!
Invigilators can be pretty strange tbh

I really don't understand what must go through your head when you thought to take out a piece of paper that you brought in from outside the exam hall.

I know someone who works part-time as an invigilator and he said that they have to do things like this so they don't get in trouble if an inspection of the invigilators was happening (as a precaution). The invigilators are always cautious as mistakes in the quality of invigilating could lead to the exam centre being closed

Well she gave me the timetable back at the end so surely even if she had to report it, she was already satisfied that there was nothing that could help me on there

You didn’t need to though so it was a pointless risk.

You should be okay then. Just keep it out of your head and focus on the last few exams

You've got this! :thumbsup:

I always highlight/cross mine off at the end of the exam as do most people in my school so yeah I do think it's a little harsh but the invigilators are just doing their job and you wont get in trouble

The invigilators always ask us to check if we accidentally brought our phones in or other pieces of paper, even if it's a blank piece of paper. You can't even bring in the exam timetable into the hall. So this confuses me, and I'm wondering why you had the exam timetable, unless your invigilators do things differently.

we have to have the timetable as it has your exam details which they check to make sure you are in the right place and they wont let you sit the exam without one on your desk! They check it matches with what name you wrote on your exam paper, Otherwise you could be sitting an exam and writing someone else's name etc.
