      Hi, thank you in advance for your help.

      I am taking level 1 in December, I am someone who finds people chewing loudly and snapping their gum to be very distracting. I have purchased ear plugs but am concerned that if someone is doing that near me I might be distracted.

      Is this generally a problem in the exam room? Do the proctors address this? What can I do if someone near me is doing this?

      Thank you!

      That should not be a problem. There is enough distance between two people in the exam room. But in case if it is very irritating, you can always communicate your concerns with the proctor and they should definitely help.

      Should definitely say something if anything is disturbing your concentration!

      Coincidentally we just ran an article about how gum-chewing improves your studies and CFA exam performance. Hope this doesn’t make it worse for you @mark_lasky!
