Question Paper notes during the exam

Hi guys,
I noticed while doing the qbanks that I may need a paper on which I can write notes or scribble something.
Like for example about pulmonary volumes, or a statistics question that needs construction of a 2X2 table.
So in Prometric centers, will they give us a paper and pen or a noteboard to write on?
Just asking

You should get two wipe off boards, eraser and a marker/pen. It is a good idea to use them. Research has shown that students who write during an 8 hour exam stay more focused and therefore get higher scores.

do we really get board and marker in exam in every centre. Or we have to ask the prometric centre to provide it?

Default Fred V2 has notes

I don't see any need for this noteboard
The Fred V2 software has a notes function and you can write your notes there

Default Prometric laminated papers

They must give a laminated paper on which we should write our CIN number
because whenever you return from break you have to enter the CIN number to start a new break
So it's a rule, two laminated papers, two markers, and an eraser
