I bought a $5 kitchen timer from Target (Hamilton Beach, I think).

I then opened it up (easy with a wee little screwdriver), and ripped out the noise-maker.

Presto!  Silent timer!

use a stopwatch, and open it up and take out the speaker plate. its extremely easy, and if you feel like you'll screw it up then buy 2 and experiment the first time. that's what i did but ended up returning the second one because the process was so simple.  i think that's your  best bet.

how can i prove to the proctors that it makes no noise if they give me crap and say no stop watches?

Simple, don't let it make any noise and you'll be fine.  You don't have to "prove" anything.  Stopwatches are legal--but if they were to make noise, the proctors will take them.
