Smile Use of White board and marker durng exam

Guys, are you able to use the white board and marker during the exam lets say to resolve a problem of specificity in wich you have to draw the 2x2 table????? I know you can use it before the exam to add things that you may forget, but can I also use it to resolve a problem during the exam?????

Thank you

Thatīs what I used it for... to draw diagrams that helped me memorize specific things, solve calculations and so on. I didnīt use it to write down stuff before the test.
You can use it, then erase it and so on. The only thing that has to stay on there the whole time is your login number at the top.
I got two boards, two markers and one īeraserī to use during the test. And you can use both sides of the boards.
I hope this helps.
