Teacher preparing for OCR Level 1 ICT Functional Skills, and this particular guidance note took my interest:

During the time allowed for Part B (1 hour 45 minutes), candidates must not have access to the internet. Candidates should not be able to send or receive emails but must have access to email software (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) so that they can demonstrate their ability to e.g. organise attachments when sending an email.
So, blocking Internet - no problem, Impero will do that for us. But how are they expected to access my Exchange 2007 Box with Outlook but not recieve/send e-mails??

    Even better when I have to administer these exams where they use an external email client!

    Put all the exam users in a distribution group. Use transport rules that prevent that distribution group from sending or receiving e-mails.

    Nice idea - didn't think of that, guess I'll take a look. But, crikey, what a load of hassle!
