Still waiting for ours.
Can anyone confirm if the answers will absolutley need to be written on the actual question booklet (as per the 2015 sample paper example on Warwickshire website)?
After each time limit elapses, do they then take away the paper? For example, suppose there is a 10min maths section followed by a 20min non VR section. Do they take away the maths paper before starting the non VR paper, or does it remain on the desk? What happens if they do not take it away and during the non VR section my child suddenly remembers a correction to the maths section and decides to flick back and change an answer?
Is a digital watch permitted and would a single quiet beep starting and stopping a stopwatch be acceptable?
Could he wear two watches, digital on one wrist with stopwatch and analogue back up on the other, or would the examiner think this odd?
What happens in the break between the two tests? Can we see our child or will he have to stay at his desk, if so can we visit him?
How long is the break and, if they can leave the exam room, in the past has there ever been an unruly rush of parents, anxious to provide pick me up food and hugs?
I can't answer all these despite this being no 4 sitting it this year but you leave them and don't return until the end so no, you will not see them in any breaks, you leave the site entirely.
The booklets do get taken in I believe so you cannot return to them, you just get your timed sections then that bit is over.
Yes I am sure he will write answers on the booklet as they are marked by a computer which just picks up the shaded boxes.
Can't answer re stopwatches as that never occurred to me, I personally wouldn't bother though.
