  • You will be required to allow screen share/screen recording on your device
  • Your examiner will ask for you to show him your workspace and surrounding area using the webcam.
    • Your webcam will need to be detachable, or contained within the laptop so you can show the examiner your desk.
      • if your webcam cable is very short, we would advise you to get a USB cable extender so you have more flexibility so you can show the examiner around easily
    • You will not be able to do this with a desktop with a built-in webcam such as an iMac, unless you are able to move the computer around, such that the Examiner can see your ENTIRE room including UNDER the desk.
    • Please move the webcam slowly as instructed by your Invigilator.
  • Make sure your desk is clear of clutter and notes
  • This is a closed book examination and you must not have any guidance materials printed, onscreen or nearby.
  • You must NOT use multiple monitors.
    • If you have multiple monitors please disconnect and remove these from the desk.
  • The webcam should be placed on your primary monitor so the instructor can see you looking at the screen.
    • If the examiner deems that you are looking away from the monitor 'too often' your examination may be flagged and deemed void.
  • You must be in a quiet room with no distractions.
  • You must be alone for the examination.
