NEW POLICY FOR PEARSON EXAMS IN SUMMER 2022
IGCSE & A-LEVEL EXAM GUIDELINE FOR MAY/JUNE 2022 EXAMS
This is to inform you of a new Global British Council policy pertaining to the use of digital/analogue wristwatches, and fitness bands at exam venues.
The new policy prohibits all candidates from wearing and using traditional wristwatches and any gadgets that can store information or can connect to web-enabled sources of information at all its exam venues. This policy has been put into place to further ensure the integrity and security of the examinations, given the more sophisticated technology now available.
Non permitted gadgets include but are not limited to:
• Analogue watches
• Fitness bands
• Wristwatches that have a data storage device
If a candidate is found wearing or using the above-mentioned gadgets, the candidate will be asked to remove the device and leave it at the designated area at their own responsibility. The British Council will not be responsible for loss or damage of any personal items placed at the assigned areas.
Sufficient clocks will be placed inside the examination halls to facilitate candidates who wish to keep a check on time.
The policy will be in effect at all exam venues during the May/June 2022 exams session and onward.
