Computer Station Preparation 

Ensure your computer station is prepared 30 minutes prior to the scheduled connection time to reduce potential connection issues. It is MANDATORY that all candidates test their exam day computer PRIOR to the examination date to ensure all requirements are met. If a candidate is unable to access their examination due to a failure to complete the computer readiness check prior to the exam, they will forfeit their booking. 

  • YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO INSTALL A PROGRAM UPON CONNECTION TO A PROCTOR. Confirm you can install programs on the computer you intend to write the examination on. This is not available for download prior to examination day. 
  • Please test your computer’s capability now by conducting a check on the terminal you will be using on exam day by checking the requirements here. 
  • Before connecting to a live proctor, ensure that your browser’s pop-up blocker is disabled by following this help link:
                 Disable pop-ups in your Browsers 
  • A hardwired connection is preferred, a wireless connection can be used, but can sometimes be unstable with an increased risk of disconnection during the exam. If you choose to use wireless, we recommend a speed of at least 5Mbps. You may want to test your internet speed before the module using one of the following tests: 

                                                       http://speedtest.googlefiber.net/ 
                                                            http://beta.speedtest.net/ 
                                                                    https://fast.com 

  • Your physical workspace must be completely cleared except for any approved materials (see approved materials items below). 
  • It is recommended that you use Google Chrome as the web browser. 
  • You will need a web camera available that you can use to pan the examination room/environment (you will have to move this around). 
  • You are only allowed to have 1 monitor running during the exam. If you have more than one monitor being used, please disconnect the other monitor and ensure it is turned around so that the screen is not facing you upon connection to the proctor. 

Technical issues encountered during the exam, which are a result of the candidate requiring a rebooking of the exam, may result in additional exam fees payable by the candidate.
