All candidates should have two sharpened pencils and a rubber with them.
No other stationery is required to complete the assessments accurately (including rulers) and therefore should not be brought into the assessment room unless specifically stated as part of an access arrangements requirement.
Water should be provided in all centres if required therefore we generally advise against personal water bottles being brought in.
No wrist watches of any kind or any electronic devices should be brought in to the assessment room. All rooms will have at least one clock which will be visible to all candidates and time prompts are given at 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 45 minutes.
No other personal items or toys should be brought into, or used, in the assessment rooms. If you have any concerns about this you should contact the AQE Office directly and we will be able to advise you further.
Any medication should be given to either the onsite first aider, or the room invigilator (depending on the nature of the medication). All candidates who require medication or access to medical devices will have it, though AQE should be informed of this in advance via an application for Access Arrangements (please see the relevant section of our website).
