Cambridge English examinations: Ban on mobile phones and electronic devices as of 2016


As of January 2016, candidates participating in Cambridge English examinations will not be permitted to take their mobile phones or any other electronic devices into the examination room or the speaking test.

Electronic devices include iPods, iPads, e-readers, laptops, and any other devices on which notes could be accessed, data received or transmitted during an examination session.

This decision was made by Cambridge Assessment English taking into account the growing threat of mobile technology and prevailing policy of other examination boards around the world.

As of January 2016, any candidates participating in Cambridge English examinations found with mobile phones or other electronic devices in their possession in an examination room will be disqualified.

The Hellenic American Union already complies with this regulation. Candidates participating in Cambridge English examinations administered by the Hellenic American Union are not permitted to take with them in the examination rooms and speaking tests mobile phones and/or electronic devices. Candidates are strongly advised to leave such equipment behind and not bring it to examination centers; the Hellenic American Union bears no responsibility for loss or damage of such equipment in examination centers.

Cambridge Assessment English is expected to provide more detailed information in the next few months.
