From April 18th you are not allowed to wear watches during exams at the University of Oslo. The reason for that is that there is a lot of new smart watches on the market, and it is not possible to distinguish these from the traditional watches. The clocks must henceforth be put in bags, jacket pockets or the like along with mobile phones, MP3 players and other electronic equipment.
