I don't think you can because it said no digital watches. I don't think you should take the risk as I've heard that these supervisors are really strict.

Can I bring my G Shock watch (Digital), I am just a bit confused because it is not a smartwatch.
Iím not exactly sure but I think it is fine to take it with you. As itís not a smartwatch (like an apple watch) it should be no problem but itís best to check with someone else just in case. Good luck for your exam.

Those are fine. Just don't wear it and only use it to keep track of the time.

Yeah, that'd be a good choice, my parents bought a small analogue watch which I could wear during the exam. In the james an mock test, we were only allowed to bring an analogue watch and we couldn't wear it during the tests - it had to be put on the table and the see-thru pencil case/water botle (which I just brought a zip-lock bag) on the floor.

Well, from what I heard, Hendersons is accurate for the english exams and JAC for the maths ones, and the practice tests on the department of education website are considerably easier than the real exam. I was also a bit worried about the writing, because on a website (I think it was exam success), it said even if you get all superiors but an avg in the writing, you might not get a spot. Anyways, good luck trying out for Macrob
there is no writing this year because it got extended so much.

I also got all superiors and got into the school of my choice. I wanted to share my experience on the exam and some tips and tricks so see below for a Youtube video I made.
