Rule 2: Stop the exam after and only after three hours have elapsed. Which of these rules justifies and governs her behaviour as an exam invigilator? If it is Rule 1, then she has made no mistake in stopping the exam after two hours. She has done exactly what she is supposed 38 ACTION to do. She has made a mistake in what she believes, but this is not a mistake of conduct. It is bad action one should apologize for, not bad belief. So she would have no need to apologize for her behaviour.
