Just been given the requirements for the Level 2 Functional Skills exams for next year which will take place in 2 parts - part a with access to the Internet and ability to send emails, and part b with no internet access, not able to send and receive emails but still able to use Outlook or Outlook Express. All within the same 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Disabling Internet during the exam we think we have covered (will test using LanSchool's ability to block web thoroughly before the exam takes place). However we're going to be a bit stumped when it comes to the Email disabling of send/recieve but not the usage of email itself.

Why can't exam boards think of these things when they dream up the exams? Can we get a technical person onto each exam board for all computer exams please so that we're not faced with these challenges every year!
