Wearing a vibrating alarm watch should do the trick, one with enough power would wake anyone up. Something like this should work.
My proctor said he wasn’t “allowed” to give one minute warnings. I took the test 2 times with the same proctor. The first time my quantitative score was a 6. I left probably 20% of my questions blank, my time management was terrible that attempt. You can’t fill any answers in once that time is up. My proctor made sure nobody was able to fill questions in at a later portion of the test by placing a sticky note on our desks to designate the amount of blanks we had. Second attempt I asked for the one minute warning again, surprise he said no again. It was worth a shot. Keep in mind my proctors timer was his phone so it’s not like we could look up and see where we were at. Anyway, I was prepared this time. I bought a non smart watch on amazon with a timer that vibrated, set it 30s before the proctors timer went off and used those 30s to fill in my blank answers. Below is the link to the watch I bought:

Hey there, I was recently in the same situation. I solved my problem with getting a wristwatch with vibration alarm - see [link]
I put the wristwatch on before I sleep and set the alarm time. It wakes me up in the morning (unless I sleep very late). It vibrates for 10 seconds at the alarm time and again 5 minutes later. It has three seperate alarm schedules - so you can increase the frequency if you like.
It should do the trick for you unless you're a heavy sleeper. I feel very satisfied and relieved with the purchase.
This is what I wear. The Timex Expedition Vibration alarm watch. Three different alarms with different vibrations for each, plus a hydration alarm which can be set to go off at any time interval you want, and will keep repeating until you stop it. Also, it seems like it's permanently on sale for $30 on Amazon. You can actually turn off the beeps on this watch and just have everything be vibration with the exception of the hour chime. It's great!
Comedians can buy watches that set off vibrating alarms to let them know when to start wrapping up a set. So I doubt this is the only prototype ever in existence. You could buy one and have an alarm for 5 minutes to the hour to remind you to set the alarms for the next hour or something like that?
(I just did a search - there's this one for example, just search for 'vibrating alarm'.)
This has an "occasion" alarm. I think it only has one, tho. You could probably find something better, since this is only a $30 watch.
I think if you're really looking at something that'll remember shit 4 years out, you might want to use something integrated with an online calendar to issue you a reminder closer to the date.
I started to think that this one looked ideal (using the hydration timer), but it looks like the hydration timer is audible: [link]
I recently went unilaterally deaf and have been using this watch as an alarm. Somewhat bulky, but manageable. I was hoping to find something specifically designed to be an alarm clock, not a wristwatch, but the only ones I found had poor reviews.
I haven't had a problem with sleeping through the alarm, but I think I am generally a lighter sleeper.
Any particular look or style that you're going for? There's a lot; for example, this timex. If nothing in particular, just search for "watch vibrating alarm"
Timex has a vibrating alarm watch. Just a digital watch with a vibrating alarm, no smart functions. [link]
It has a rubber strap, but you could get an aftermarket steel one pretty cheap.
