Is it rumors and hearsay or individual interpretation and caution?
Exam Procter: Excuse me, Mr. Matt267?
Exam Procter: I thought I saw you writing in your notes.
Matt267: Oh, no, sorry, I accidentally used my pencil to keep my place on a chart. I didn't write anything though.
Exam Procter: I see pencil marks and parts of the chart circled. How do I know you're not trying to copy exam material into your notes?
Matt267: Um, you don't. But trust me, I didn't just write in my notes.
Exam Procter: I'm going to need to take this binder and send it to NCEES for them to investigate. Good luck on the rest of your exam.
Not a true story, but one I wanted to avoid. But hey, you all can do what you want. I already passed.
