In a situation that I am a teacher in a class and I have an exam in class.

Each student has a problem sheet. At the end of the exam, when I collect exam, I want to tell students that the students who sit at the rear seat in the room first pass his/her exam to students sitting in front of him or her , and so on.

Is there any short way to say this in class? Any useful phrase that is common in this situation?

    Students in the rear seats, please pass your exam paper to the front – kitty Jan 19 '17 at 7:35

    Privacy issues aside, I would say, "Please pass your exams to the person in front of you." – Teacher KSHuang Jan 19 '17 at 9:46

A usual and clear way to give this instruction is to say

Please pass your exam papers forward to the person in front of you, starting with the last row.

The short form is

Please pass you exam papers forward.
