It is exams season again; and it's all a tense monotony save for this email which came through today. As a semesterly reminder to all of us who will invigilate the exams, it goes:
1) When asking students to leave their bags and belongings, please DO NOT let them leave them outside as there were THREE theft cases just today. Let the bags be INSIDE the venue. If the student takes their personal belongings (purses, handphones, etc) into the room, the student MUST put them on the side of the table.
-- "...let them leave them..."? Well ok, bad writing habit, but we get what you mean.
-- "...the student takes their personal belongings..." Cool. 1 student is in charge of everyone's belongings
-- "...at the side of the table..." Wow, that's really asking for too much - how on earth are the belongings going to defy gravity to remain at the side of the table?
2) ...(bla bla bla)... Please be discrete and quiet as the students will probably be having exams.
-- I cannot imagine what else would students be having in Exam venues during Exams time if not having exams.
Now, who wants to slap my wrists for having just posted the contents of somebody's email on the Internet? :D
