Smartwatches

Please note that SMARTWATCHES have now joined mobile phones, iPods and MP3/4 players on the list of 'potential technological/web enabled sources of information' that are classified as 'unauthorised items' and must therefore not be brought into any exam. Possession of such items in a public exam is deemed as a 'serious offence' by all exam boards and will typically result in disqualification if found in the student's possession during an exam.
