    Smile Remember to hand in this answer sheet.

    Remember to hand in this answer sheet.
    Don't forget to turn in this answer sheet.

    At the end of a midterm test paper, I'd like to remind students to hand in their answer sheet. Which of the above two sounds better? Thanks.

    Thanks, Tdol.
    But could you explain in a few words why not "turn in?"

    They are both equivalent. There is no difference in meaning. Both sentences are commonly said in my opinion.

    Wait guys, isn´t it more appropriate if I say ¨Hand over the test paper or the answer sheet?¨

    Hand over the test paper and the answer sheet?

    I think you want both, don't you? I think "hand in" is better than "hand over". A mugger says to his victim "Hand over the wallet and you won't get hurt!"

    I think I made it sound as if I´m a mugger or something

    If you´re teacher/professor is turning red because you´re answering the test really slow...
