    I had an invigilator for my statistics exam was making a ridiculous amount of noise. He had lots of change in his pocket and sounded like he masturbating or something because he sounded like a bloody cow bell

    If you tell the exam board do you reckon you'll get extra marks because of the distraction?

    I doubt anything would be done about it at all.

    It doesn't sound much more distracting than a student with hayfever who doesn't realise that sniffing after sneezing causes another sneeze, and so they sneeze 30 times in a row.

    I got dragged out halfway through my math exams simply because I was sneezing. Not so much of the disturbance though but more of the swine flu threat

    I've never understood people's hatred of any noise in an exam - sure having O Fortuna performed live, right into your ear, could, potentially, put you off your trigonometry - but someone walking around with a bit of change in their pocket? Give me a break, some people have seriously posted here asking if they can get special consideration?

    Lol, I like your O Fortuna remark but I understand how frustrating noise can be.

    It probably wouldn't be so bad in a maths or science exam where if you can work out the answer, you'll be able to work it out in whatever condition. However, in essay-based exams, I know that I often have up to 12 points in my head which need to be written down somehow later in the paragraph or in later paragraphs and even a persistent cough can confuse me!

    So at least I feel your annoyance OP. Shame you can't do anything about it though lol! :p:
