    How can I say invigilator in French? As in the person that is present when taking an exam, to give out extra paper and make sure no one is cheating...

    For the benefit of francophone students of English:
    " Un surveillant/une surveillante " would be known as a "proctor" in Canada and USA. "Invigilator" is known in Canada, but is not as common as is "proctor". My two U.S. college dictionaries don't even list the word "invigilator".
