Neither do we here at Kent, but I would be very interested if anyone has a solution to this knotty problem. At present, we announce that any students discovered with phones on them in the exam room during the exam will be reported to the BoE, and so they are - but I'm not sure that any what, if any action is taken at that point.

It's that time of year again...
Does anyone use any form of electronic mobile phone detector, and if so, can they recommend any particular model?
We've changed our rules on mobiles in exams, as simply saying "they are banned" was proving increasingly impossible to police, so now we seek to manage them better, and we now want to hunt down those who still break the rules.
