    At an exam

    What might a teacher say to a student he has been examining that he's not going to ask any more questions and the exam is over?

    THAT'LL BE ALL, THANK YOU.
    THAT'S ALL WE HAVE TO TIME FOR.
    I THINK WE'VE COVERED EVERYTHING
    THANK YOU, THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME.

    Do any of the above phrases sound unnatural? Would a native speaker
    use other expressions, and if so, could you suggest a few more?

    Thanks for your help.

    Those sound fine. I usually say something like:

    Okay, thank you. You can go.
    Alright, that's it. Thank you.

    The teacher might say "The exam's over."
