i failed to have cfai approve my heart medication. it was disheartening, to say the least, to begin the exam with an incident report!
Sorry to hear that, my proctors weren’t that strict, I started emptying out my pockets and they started looking at me all weirdly. I later saw a girl pull out what appeared to be a cough drop from her pocket, before the exam started, the proctors didn’t say anything. So they wrote you up without a warning? How did it go otherwise? There were no incidences where I was except for squeaky desk problems.
they came over and asked me what it was, like it was an atomic bomb or something. i told her it was my heart medicine and she said she would have to write an incident report but hopefully it wouldn’t be a big deal. she said that people with inhalers get written up often. hopefully it’s fine but it was just not the right way to start off the exam. i got all nervous and upset about it and spent the entire test wondering if they are even going to grade it.
they had you guys empty your pockets? i guess my test center is pretty relaxed. you could’ve brought in a cheat sheet in your pocket, went to the bathroom, and looked it over if you wanted…
cfasuicide, did you write in Toronto, and if so were you sitting near or at row 15? I saw someone getting “taken” away for a little talk before the exam.
Oh no, I just assumed that they would because I thought that they would be really stringent on what gets taken into and out of the room.
Alexandrov…I was in Toronto…in row 15…where was I when this happened lol…what seat # were you?
nah i was in NY. they didn’t make a huge scene out of it but everyoneeeee was staring at me like i just tried to cheat or something.
That sucks for you suicide…I hope there doesn’t end up being any further issue for you
I was happy to see I was close to the bathroom and they could have cared less about my food in my pockets. I had 3 papers, due to my clearance of being pregnant and no one paid attention them until the 2nd half.
yeah, hopefully it won’t be a big deal. i even offered to put it back in my car but the lady was like no no no you need to have your medication in case something happens.
Dude for all they know, you might have brought a gel capsule with an embedded “fortune-cookie” type cheat sheet engraved onto a grain of rice! This is why they also ban high magnification monocles and jeweler’s loupes, to combat microscopic-grain-based cheating.
shhhhh…it was my ‘heart medicine’ wink wink
Looked like the same people that volunteer to run voting on election day at ours. Before the test, some would let people come and go freely, so would collect ID’s, and some would demand ID’s and tickets. Thought they would be much more in sync. Nice touch was we were at a church, and they had a funeral procession snaking through the parking lot at lunch.
haha, how fitting marlin!
this is scaring me. I had cough drops with me and told the proctors upfront about it. He said its ok to carry, but I should keep them in my pocket. I took those drops many times during the exam because I really had a bad cough. I saw him taking some notes on a yellow cards he had, hope it was not me. And I was talking to my neighbour after the exam was over (but we were still seated in the exam hall). I never thought of all this, but after reading this post I am scared Please someone tell me everything will be ok !!!

Does this count as an incident? My friend and I went to go to McDonalds at lunchtime and he locked his keys in the car with the engine running… The worst part was, we hadn’t even gotten our food yet. I have to say… I wasn’t a great friend, just spent the next half hour pissing myself laughing, until the RAC came and jimmyed the door. Also, I was using an old digital wristwatch with no strap and they tried to confiscate it. You are only allowed wristwatches which you can take off and place on your desk, Since this didn’t have a strap the Proctor didn’t want to allow it. As it couldn’t theoretically be worn on the wrist. Crazy…

Hmmm…I was #8…trying to think who was infront of me now
I got up to hand in my test so I could leave for lunch early, and as soon I made it up to one of the proctors, another proctor up front announced on the microphone the half hour warning. I asked the proctor nearby if I could leave and he said I had to sit back down. I was ticked!
