Dealing With Small Desks

Postby davyboy » Sat Jun 08, 2013 12:14 am

Just scoped out my test center. Very tiny desks. Will definitely have to place the answer sheet on top of the side of the booklet I'm not working on. Any tips on working with small desks? There won't even be any space for my extra pencils.

I put the fresh pencils on the seat next to me (slightly curved edges, so they didn't roll) and threw the dull ones under the desk.

The seats next to me are flipped up unfortunately so the pencils will fall off....

I took a test at a center like described - auditorium style seating, with flip up desks and flip up seats. The room was big enough that it allowed for each person to use two desks, one to the left of them and one to the right of them. Being a righty I kept my test book on the right desk, answer sheet on the left desk (bringing it over only to bubble in my answers - this was an adjustment for me, I'm used to filling in each answer as I go), extra pencils/watch on the armrest.

Ah, smart! I'm pretty sure this is the worst case scenario for my test center, so I'll have to steal this idea (assuming the proctors allow it). But hopefully it'll just be tables!
