invigilator will advise you when 15 minutes of the examination remains. When you are advised to stop, you must put your stationery down immediately. During the examination, you must remain in your seat until told you may leave. If, for exceptional reasons, you have to call

the invigilator during the examination, you should raise your hand in silence. You are not allowed to communicate with other candidates during the examinations. If you try to do so, the invigilator will
