Regulations said that we cannot wear a watch! then how are we going to monitor the time in this time sensitive exam.
Are there going to be wall clocks in each exam room, or what?

Time management in CS

You can wear a regular analog watch in CS exam but you are not allowed to put on a digital watch or any other "smart" device.
Practicing cases before the exam is very important to get you geared for a fixed timing so that during the exam you won't be looking at your watch and you'll rely completely on the center's announcements 5 minutes before the end of the encounter.

You may not possess cellular telephones, watches of any type, pagers, personal digital assistants (PDAs), two-way communication devices, or notes or study materials of any kind at any time during the examination, including during breaks. These items must be stored during the examination.
SO NO WATCHES OF ANY KIND, keeping within the time is the whole thing of cs exam , a good history, a good examination , anybody can do , but doing it in stipulated time is the thing being tested on cs, have to have a strategy, i coach my students with a new technique that helps to take care of the time, so that one just has to concentrate on his/ her weaknesses

then why FA gave a tip of wearing the watch halfway around the wrist so that we can check the time subtly without the SP noticing !!!
that is the old version of the facts when they were allowed , now no more now, have to have a strategy.....
