  • make a note of the time.
  • collect the attendance register (in order to ensure all students are present).
  • evacuate the examination room in line with the instructions given.
  • make sure that the students are supervised as closely as possible while they are out of the examination room.
  • allow the students the full working time set for the examination.
  • make a full report of the incident and of the action taken, and send to the relevant examination board.
