2. You must not become involved in any unfair or dishonest practice in any part of the examination.

3. Sitting an examination in the name of another candidate or allowing another person to sit an examination in your name, is gross misconduct and may amount to a criminal offence.

4. You must not have in your possession any unauthorised material or equipment which might give you an unfair advantage. This can include items such as notes, instruction leaflets, bags, personal TVs/stereos, reading pens and electronic communication or storage devices, including mobile telephones iPods and MP3/4 players. You must not have in your possession any product which can capture a digital image.

Possession of a mobile phone or other unauthorised material is breaking the rules, even if you do not intend to use it, and you will be subject to penalty and possible disqualification.

5. Any pencil cases taken into the examination room must be see-through.

If you have any unauthorised items that need to be stored during the examination, so that they are not in your possession, you must follow the instructions issued by your centre. If you are in any doubt, you must ask an invigilator before the examination starts.

Possession of unauthorised material is breaking the rules, even if you do not intend to use it, and you will be subject to penalty and possible disqualification.

6. You must not talk to, attempt to communicate with or disturb other candidates once you have entered the examination room.

7. The head of your centre must report to the awarding body all cases of irregularity or misconduct connected with the submission of controlled assessments, coursework or those which occur in the examination room.

8. If the awarding body is satisfied that you are involved in any irregularity, misconduct or dishonesty, your results may be cancelled. For involvement in serious offences, you may also be disqualified from the current examination and debarred from future examinations of all the awarding bodies.
