Queda terminantemente prohibida la tenencia y el uso de dispositivos móviles y/o electrónicos durante la celebración de las pruebas. La simple tenencia de dichos dispositivos así como de apuntes, libros, carpetas o materiales diversos no autorizados durante las pruebas de evaluación, supondrá la retirada inmediata del examen, su expulsión del mismo y su calificación como suspenso, comunicándose la incidencia a la Autoridad Académica del Centro para que realice las actuaciones previstas en las Pautas de Actuación en los Supuestos de Plagio, Copia o Fraude en Exámenes o Pruebas de Evaluación, aprobadas por la Comisión Permanente del Consejo de Gobierno de 29 de enero de 2015”.
