    <font face="Arial-ItalicMT" size="2">The JCQ document, &ldquo;Instructions for Conducting Examinations&rdquo; states that there should be &ldquo;at least one invigilator for each group of 20 candidates or fewer sitting practical examinations (Art, ICT and Science).&rdquo; (2009/10 version,
    Section 6.3, page 13)
    <font face="Arial-BoldMT" size="7" color="#00c594">Q. </font><font face="Arial-BoldMT" size="4" color="#00c594"><font face="Arial-BoldMT" size="4" color="#00c594">Can radios, iPods and MP3 players be used by the candidates during</font></font><font face="Arial-BoldMT" size="4" color="#00c594"> the 10 hours of supervised time?
    <font face="Arial-ItalicMT" size="2">In this sense the Externally Set Task supervised time is like any other examination, the use of radios, iPods, MP3 players, radios, mobile phones <font face="Arial-ItalicMT" size="2">etc is strictly prohibited. For more information see the &ldquo;Instructions for Conducting Examinations&rdquo; document.</font><font face="Arial-ItalicMT" size="2"> 2.

    3. See your Exams officer
    4. In our school, the EO organises our invigilation, 1 member of the Art team is available if required, to support with materials / equipment & any unplanned requests. We tell the invigilitor that the students can find materials and how it is different from a Maths exam!
    5. Your school should have an exams policy!
    6 Contact the Exam Board!
    Hope this helps!
