  • Do you have time to look at a watch? You are great!
  • Always carry analog watch even with the digital clock...Some centre don't allow digital clock
  • I hope your watch doesnt go ting every 7 minutes!
    Analog is best for exams.

  • Some analog watches have stop watch as well , i have a watch of fossil it has a stop watch , despite of it being a analog watch , so if u have one of those than it would be fine

    does it allow smartwatch?
  • I would want to take both analog and smartwatch with me. Because the management at the Centre can not allow. Last time i was not allowed to take a writing board with me.
    Even when i had read somewhere in the instructions that it was allowed.

    You cannot argue with them there. Gives you unnecessary tension :unamused:

    I dont think so smart watch does have some functions of a cellular device , so I really doubt it, but again i guess ut depends upon whether the school management are aware of whether the watch is a smart watch or digital watch as many who haven't seen those watches might think that its an ordinary digital watch with normal watch functions, so it all depends upon their interpretation and knowledge about smart watch , but if u have one than carry an analog one in case , they do not allow it

  • Can we use smart watches to cheat in exams? Is this why the cut offs are going higher year after year?
