It is already illegal to use electronic devices such as cell phones, smart watches and MP3 players to reduce the possibility of cheating during an examination. However, it is difficult to separate smart watches from ordinary wristwatches, therefore both are now prohibited.

Wristwatches must henceforth be put away in bags, jackets or the like together with cell phones, MP3 players and other electronic equipment. During a school examination, an available wristwatch may henceforth be considered as attempted cheating on par with the use of other illegal aids.

There will be visible clocks in all examination rooms, so that the candidates are able to keep track of time. By digital examination, it is also possible to keep track of time on the computer.
