Schools and Universities start to ban watches from exams


Schools and universities are taking extra steps to ensure that their students don’t have any unfair advantages while sitting exams by banning all watches. BuzzFeed News has reported that multiple universities have already issued a blanket ban on all watches during exams in case students get tempted to cheat. London’s City University have spoken out and said that it “wouldn’t be practical” to have proctors check every watch before exams to make sure they are analog. Overall this is sad news for those who genuinely like to keep track of time during exams but it is totally understandable as pupils could easily save memos and notes to their wrist and gain an unfair advantage. So if you don’t want to be handing over your expensive tech then you best leave it at home during exam days.
