Funny exam day experiences
Congrats to everyone for finishing …… now it is time to relay those funny stories from your exam day.
I will start - sat the Level 2 exam in a new location - and it was a small group of about 60-70 students across all three levels. The proctors at the location seemed very inexperienced and after I sat my Level 1 exam the year before in a large test centre the experience was completely different.
From the day: Students came in carrying all sorts of things that are normally not allowed - the proctors did not seem to mind as long as they put the items under their chairs. Students walked around alot during the exam to get water go to the toilet etc. including taking water back to their desk during the exam which was not allowed where I sat the exam last year.
The crazy things: A mobile phone rang during the afternoon session down in the Level 1 section. The guy actually answered and told the caller he was in an exam and couldn’t talk …… WTF!!! The proctor took the phone and placed it at the front of the room - did not seem to take any other action. THEN IT RANG AGAIN ABOUT 1 HOUR LATER at which point the proctor turned it off.
After the morning session we seemed to have access to the testing room and could just wander back in after the break. When I entered the testing room one guy is sitting at his desk EATING BURGER KING!!! The testing room smelt like his lunch??????
That is all frrom me :-)
